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

What People Say...

When we got home from the hospital with our new arrival it was clear that Perri, one of our miniature poodles, maternal instincts kicked in and went into overdrive. She was immediately acting like a mother separated from her pups and just wanted to care for the ‘naked puppy’. She has a history of being so motherly, even to the point that she has produced milk for puppies that aren’t hers even before she had a litter and has mothered every type of animal she could. She was panting, pacing and unable to relax for long at all. She could whine for England!

We tried other herbal remedies we had at hand for a previous anxious dog and nothing worked at all. She stopped eating and stressed herself into overheating too. Her stress was starting to impact the other dogs and she just couldn’t unwind. No matter if we worked off her energy with a walk and she wasn’t even interested in her usual mind games or call games. We also couldn’t offer long-lasting treats and chews too often as they gave her an upset stomach.

As soon as the Calming Floral Spray arrived I gave the bed a spritz and put some on her coat and the change was instant. She just got on her bed and fell asleep. She stopped panting and barely whines now, started eating again and she only does a bit of whining if the baby cries. We have now been able to positively reinforce her calm behaviour. I honestly can’t recommend this enough to people.
