|Aromatherapy with Lavender and Mint|
You can get them for detangling. You can get them for puppies. You can get them for gleaming coats. But I reckon this one takes the biscuit.
Aromatherapy for dogs? Since aromatherapy works by placebo affect - how does the dog know it's meant to be feeling better? And is it for
But it's not as bad or as confusing as the second example I have collected for you. The "Boyzone" grooming product which is "subtle and masculine".
I mean - what? What does a dog think designates "subtle" or "masculine"? Given their senses of smell are thousands of times better than ours, what is subtle to us is probably an explosion of scent to a dog. Our "subtle" is probably "overpowering" in dog years.
And then, "masculine". Whose take on masculinity is this? A dog's? Or ours? And given we have enough trouble defining what a "masculine" scent is - to Burton Dasset, WD40 is a defining masculine odour, while to others it can be sweat - then how does a dog do that?

And if the dog can smell "masculine", what about a scent that is "feminine"? Again, the smell that probably best captures "feminine" to a dog, is that of "bitch on heat". That draws them for miles, that does. And yet, mysteriously, this isn't in the range.
No, there's no doubt about it. This is a seriously flawed, stereotyping, concept.
I reckon we should let dogs be dogs.
