The Original Chubbs Bar got its name from a cat. Chubbs, a blue mackerel tabby and white Persian owned by Danelle German, president of the National Cat Groomers Institute, quickly became our most valued R&D worker during the development of these degreasing shampoo bars. Chubbs patiently tested various liquid shampoo samples and then shampoos in bar form until we settled on an effective degreaser that was suitable for both felines and canines alike.
Chubbs knows what a quality coat finish looks and feels like from his time in the show halls earning his Grand Premier title in CFA. He is very particular about his hair. After all, his name is GP Fanci Fx 2 Sexy of Bara – he definitely thinks he’s too sexy for his hair!
Chubbs finally put his stamp of approval on the shampoo bar when we created a formula that lathered nicely and left him squeaky clean, fluffy, soft, and without separation in his coat.
It’s about time, too! Cat groomers searching for that purrfect degreasing shampoo were quickly running out of options, settling for less-than-savory results, or giving up on their search altogether. We are so glad Chubbs gave of his time to help bring the Chubbs Bars into existence. We hope you like them!
Although Chubbs is a cat and Danelle is a cat groomer, Chubbs Bars were sent off for initial testing by a few dog groomers. All reported back that the Chubbs Bars were great on those greasy canine coats, problem ear areas, and other conditions.
