Vellus Products, Inc., is a manufacturing company in Columbus, Ohio USA,
that custom designs dog grooming formulas. A dream come true for President
Sharon Kay Doherty who purchased her first show dog in 1976. "There were no
authentic salon grooming formulas for dogs. The dog shampoo and dog
conditioner products available contained either oil or lanolin in the

products were not the answer either, resulting in irritation of the skin."
Mrs. Doherty stopped showing dogs in 1992 to work with nephew, David A.
Tanner to introduce genuine salon grooming formulas to the dog show network
and loving pet owners.
Dr. David A. Tanner's impressive background as a research chemist in the

cosmetic grade ingredients made the difference. Vellus offers a complete

dog show exhibitors, royals, celebrities and caring pet owners around the
