I loved this list from Phyllis DeGioia with DogTime.com because we all know “natural” ingredients don’t always mean the good stuff. In her review of Earthbath, she indicated that it rinsed quick and her dog Ginger’s fur smelled great.

Senior Manager, Public Relations for Coldwell Banker. Grew up in south Florida as an avid Seminole fan and attended college in the mountains of North Carolina. Athena wanted to wake up in that city that doesn’t sleep so headed to Madison Avenue to start her marketing career. Athena has been with this awesome brand for more than 15 years and can be found generating buzz about CB in every way possible. The one area of her job she loves the most is overseeing the Coldwell Banker Homes for Dogs Project in partnership with Adopt-a-Pet.com where hundreds of thousands of dogs have now found their fur-ever home. In her spare time, you can find her either digging up a new area in her yard for another flower bed or planning her next travel adventure. She resides with the Bukowski of our generation (AKA her husband) along with her cats Jolene, Ziggy and Lucy in Atlanta, Ga.
