My Story

As loving, committed dog owners and animal lovers in general, we all try to do our best to look after our pets the best we can with the knowledge we have. We feed them specific diets using natural products for their skin, coat, and general wellbeing. And we apply the same principles to our own self-care.

In search of the most suitable natural aromatherapy product for your dog, and yourself, you came across Vita Canis. 100% natural aromatherapy products for your dog and you!

I’m Jitka, happy dog mum to 5 mischievous terriers. I’ve always been passionate about dogs and being in the pet industry for over 30 years. Including winning international dog grooming competitions, representing England and being placed at the World Team Championship, winning Dog Grooming Salon of the Year award.

The knowledge I’ve gained over the years, plus my diplomas in canine massage and clinical aromatherapy, have led me to be the proud founder of Vita Canis.


My personal belief to live an environmentally friendly lifestyle. And it is a key driving force in how I run my business, which is at the core of all my product development.

Imagine how you would feel if you treat your dog with highly effective natural products with no synthetic chemicals, no parabens, no steroids, and synthetic fragrances?

Just imagine the positive impact Vita Canis natural products could have on your dogs’ and your life…

Ticks and fleas are not bothering you and your dog, as they are repelled by powerful essential oils in Tick Off.

No horse flies buzzing around you, your dog, or your horse, thanks to our Insect Repelling Citrus Spray.

Soothing Skin Relief for your dog suffering from the discomfort of itchy skin.

Calming Floral Spray for your dog helps him deal with stress the natural way. The powerful blend of essential oils and hydrosols I use in Calming Floral Spray is great for firework fear, motion sickness, adjusting to new environments, visits to vets, and dog groomers.

Utterly Butterly Paw Butter & Hand Butter for all those dry paws and hands, to keep them moisturised and nourished.

Do you also love things handmade? Take a look at our lovely oil burners. They are designed by me and made in Slovakia by my very talented friend Ivka. An oil burner wouldn’t be complete without a lovely aroma, and our scented stones are the perfect match. 😊

Come inside and take a look at our online shop! And if you have some extra time, why not stop in at the library (aka my blog)! I’m super passionate about sharing my knowledge, and you will find LOTS of useful DIY tips from natural healing remedies to grooming tips to doggie treat recipes and lots, lots more.

Vita Canis Style to Rescue

I don’t only love my dogs, I love all dogs! Big, small, fluffy, even the slobbery ones! That was the reason why I started Vita canis Style to Rescue. And am so passionate about Vita Canis Style to Rescue. The charity dog grooming competition for rescue dogs that I organize annually. You can find out more about this amazing event here.

What People Say...

Hi Jitka, I contacted you about your Skin Relief Spray and your Hand Butter about a week ago as my 89-year-old mum suffers from terribly itchy skin. We’ve tried almost every skin product from the usual chemists and have resorted to antihistamines after checking they are okay with mums other atrial fibrillation tabs.

Unfortunately, these can cause nose bleeds so a new remedy was required. We’ve been using the Vita Canis Soothing Antiseptic Spray for thee days and her back is no longer driving her mad with itching. The Hand Butter has been applied to her feet with the same excellent results. We will continue using the spray and butter and I will give you another update next week but things are looking promising.
