  • Trial sizes?

    I'm looking to try some new finishing sprays and colognes and the like, especially Isle of Dogs and Artero, as well as just colognes in general. Does anybody know of good places to find sample sizes? Ryan's Pet, PetAgree, and PetEdge don't seem to have much.

    Maybe try the manufacturers. They often have deals to introduce people to their products.
    Old groomers never die, they just go at a slower clip.

    Groom on!!!

      Trade shows. Frequently they have packages of small sizes available.

        Call manufacturers like Nature's Specialties. They often send samples to shop owners looking to try their products.

            I'm not a shop owner, just an employee, but I'll try the manufacturers anyway. I'm not looking to get free stuff, not really fair since I won't ever buy in bulk, just small sizes... I'll have to try and find some local trade shows. Thanks guys

              I think there is a small charge for the SS trial colognes....try them, they have wonderful colognes

                  Many companies simoly cannot AFOORD to make the smaler containers. Those bottles are not cost effective. ALSO IMO, having worked with John Stazko for several years, he suggests buying a 16 ou nce bottle of every shampoo to try because you want to use it on more than one dog. More than one type of coat...that way you get a true feel for the product.

                        Looked into them today, very affordable with lots of different scents, I think I'm going to try it out!

                          I agree finishing sprays are not smell good I have however recieved several trial size finishing sprays from Nature's Specialitys. .....but I always go back to my Cherrybrook.
                          But yes, a shampoo should be a a 16oz or more so that one might try on several dogs.

                            Does Isle of Dogs make Colognes? They have those scentament sprays, but those seem like they are for pet people.

                              Replascent odor spray. Comes in several scents...Violet & Sea Mist, Red Berries & Champagne are just a couple. I have never tried this product though so maybe someone else will chime in....but they do say for dogs or home spray so you could be correct about being geared towards the pet owners.
