I must not be living right! I’ve never had a mud bath nor have I had a blueberry facial. But there I was driving Harley to Olde Towne Pet Resort for a day at the spa!
“I know that Harley always comes for grooming on Fridays and this Friday is like no other. We have a new product mud bath and blueberry facial so we will give these extra services to Harley this Friday before his groom. I am so excited that we are offering these services and that we can share this with our Harley. And the day before he is on live TV!”
Earlier in the month – they asked if Harley could join them on the FOX 5 GOOD MORNING DC show as they discussed pet safety and precautions on Halloween. Now he has a day at the spa – the day before!
Yes, I chuckled after reading the email – I mean who wouldn’t? My dog was just offered a mud bath and blueberry facial. Hey – NEWS FLASH – I’ve never had a blueberry facial!
I dropped in a few days before his appointment to visit with Fernando (Grooming manager and Harley’s groomer). I wanted to discuss the process along with the products. After all, this “is” my Harley-Darley.
The mud bath product they were using came from:
Madra Mór Mud is premixed with nourishing beneficial ingredients to form a creamy luxurious mud bath that provides a gentle, deep clean without suds, lather or bubbles!

Harley would experience the “Mobility Mud” treatment.
On “mud day”, I set up my camera to film the “activity.” Secretly I figured I could live “vicariously” through Harley. BOL
Notice the thickness of the mud, it looked like I thought it would – but smelled much better than I imagined. It CANNOT be applied anywhere near the face, and should be massaged into the skin for at least 10 minutes…
Once the mud was applied, it was time for South Bark’s blueberry facial. I’ve got to tell you, that stuff smelled amazing!
You can use it as a face wash, body shampoo and overall brightener. It’s all natural, – PH balanced, and safe for both cats and dogs. Just place a “dab” on a wet warm washcloth – and apply it to your pet’s face. Massage it over the area for 1-2 minutes – then rinse.
Harley seemed to love both the smell – and the taste! He kept licking his lips…
If you’re wondering about Harley’s reaction to all of this pampering, he wasn’t fazed much at all…
I definitely would like to incorporate this into our regiment perhaps twice a year. However, I don’t think I would do it myself. #notthatbrave
It’s been more than a week, and I can still see the difference in his face, and to be honest, he’s still smells pretty good too.
“Thank you” Olde Towne Pet Resort to such a luxurious treat for a really special Doodle.
