The winter of 2017 was not only tough on humans, it was also hard on our furry friends. Stacy Voegele’s wiener dog, Charles Jerome, wouldn’t even go outside.
“He will not go outside when it’s freezing.“
Stacy saw an ad for a balm she thought might help and decided to make her own.
“It’s just four ingredients: pure Shea butter, beeswax, coconut oil, and sunflower or avocado oil. We made our first batch and tested it on Charles Jerome and a pitbull named Thea Louise. They hate being outside, but once we put the balm on them, they were outside forever in the cold.”
Stacy, who many may know as The Critter Sitter, turned to her friends on Facebook for ideas to name this magic product. Her friend Kacey Rask came up with the name Paddy Wax. Stacy soon started offering Paddy Wax to all The Critter Sitter clients. A Facebook live video brought in 80 orders in two weeks.
“The response was awesome. It has slowed down a bit because it’s starting to warm up, but I think when it gets really hot outside we’ll see orders pick up again,” says Stacy. “Paddy Wax provides a layer of protection and also helps with dry ears and noses and people can use it for dry skin too. It’s a totally natural product.”
You can order Paddy Wax in four and eight ounce jars on Stacy’s Facebook pages: The Critter Sitter and The Critter Sitter Paddy Wax.
