Opie & Dixie - Nothing But The Best!

Opie & Dixie’s founder, Debbie, is a strong advocate of living organic. After stumbling across breast cancer, she delved into learning all about the products that we put on our bodies and how their ingredients seep into them. With this, she became determined to eliminate all products with potentially harmful ingredients from her life.

And like many of us, her dogs, Opal (Opie) and Dixie, are her everything. They are the first ones she sees in the morning when she awakens, and the last ones before she goes to bed. Being a pawrent, she wanted the same safe, natural and organic ingredients for her dogs that she uses herself, but was unable to find them. Thus, in 2008, she began developing a line of similar grooming products specially formulated for dogs and cats, and named it after her two precious dogs: Opie & Dixie.

Using only the highest quality, 100% natural and organic ingredients sourced from North America to make their organic range of synthetic and toxin free products, Opie & Dixie promises you and your pets Nothing But The Best!
Nothing But The Best!

Why Organic?

Organic products contain no synthetics, chemicals or pesticides; authentic organic brands like Opie & Dixie require organic certification by an official third-party agency, and are usually more costly than non-organic brands. Due to the strict standards, their manufacturing procedures are more labor intensive and intricate, hence the higher cost.

You may be wondering, does it matter if the grooming products you use are organic? They are after all, applied externally. How will they affect your pet? Organic products are actually safer for your pets, as their skin absorbs the ingredients in their grooming products directly.

Opie & Dixie doesn’t use:

Parabens - Parabens have been linked to cancer and developmental issues in government, industry & academic studies. They are often known to irritate the eyes and skin, causing allergies and rashes.

Sulfates - They can cause extremely sensitive skin to erupt in skin rashes, hives, itching, and swelling.

Mineral Oil - This can clog pores and interfere with the skin’s ability to eliminate toxins, often causing dandruff. If present in the ear, it can also promote ear infections.

Propylene Glycol - PG is a petroleum derivative; it is said to be strong enough to remove barnacles from boats! Imagine what it could do to your pets’ skin.

Synthetic Fragrances - Synthetic fragrances are mostly petroleum based; pets with allergies are highly recommended to stay away from them. These chemicals can cause sneezing and itchy, skin irritations.

Why Opie & Dixie?

Opie & Dixie uses tons of beneficial herbal botanicals and other natural ingredients in their grooming aids for dogs! It is clear with their transparent listing of the ingredients that their products are all made with certified organic ingredients, and best of all, are safe and gentle for use on any dog.

Their bath products for dogs are all made with purified glacier water (except the Ear Wash, which uses spring water), and are all made in Canada:

  • Organic Ear Wash - A veterinarian-developed formula made with the safest, gentlest organic herbs and botanicals.
  • Organic Rosehips Dry Shampoo - A detangling and conditioning mist that is a quick and convenient solution for dogs that need a waterless bath.
  • Organic Puppy Shampoo - So gentle, it can be used daily, and even provides natural sunscreen protection.
  • Organic Oatmeal Almond Shampoo - Provides moisturising relief for dry, itchy skin and helps eliminate dandruff.
  • Organic Herbal Creme Rinse - Gives dry skin a well-needed hydrating boost.

    Opie & Dixie also has a range of USDA Organic skincare products that are made in USA:

  • Paw Balm - Paw Balms are incredibly useful if your dog has dry, cracked paws! Like us, their most used body part, their paws, sometimes need a little extra TLC.
  • Pawstik - The same goodness in the Paw Balm, but in a convenient stick form!
  • Snoutstiks - Dogs have noses that are at least a million times more sensitive than ours, so imagine how painful a dry or irritated nose can be! Snoutstiks protect & heal with natural UV protection and natural oils.
  • Spotstik - Hot spots can be very annoying and painful, and unfortunately they can be quite common. With moisturising, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredients, the Spotstik can help these raw, painful lesions heal.

    Not forgetting cats, Opie & Dixie also has an Organic Kitty Shampoo that is unscented and free of essential oils too! This is perfect for cats as they are sensitive and affected by essential oils and strong scents.

    "So I had a really itchy chest these few days that I couldn't stop scratching. It was all red and sore. After applying the Opie & Dixie Organic Spotstik, I stopped scratching almost immediately. Just look at the results!!

    We're so thankful the Spotstik came in handy! Although we won it from the giveaway but it's really useful! I swear my paws on that!"
