Question What shampoo?

I am looking for a good shampoo for my two Rotties. When Hazard was alive I used Mr Crystals Orange Peel Oil shampoo and I loved it! Of course now it is no longer sold. I admit I had forgotten about doggie smell in the years of having an apbt, then a Boston. Those two were mostly shedless and stinkless. However Raji certainly does. When he goes out it eminates from him for a good 20 minutes after he comes back in. When we pet/cuddle him we smell doggie as well. Prada still has that baby smell to her but I only see it getting worse soon. I am not ocd or anything but I do like a clean home. I also dont want to use something too harsh on him as to dry out his coat or anything. As much time as he spends in the salt water I am as concerned with moisturizing as de-stinking...well almost.

Re: What shampoo?

I use an oatmeal shampoo that I got from Walmart, Sergeant's fur so fresh with oatmeal, milk and honey which makes her smell wonderful and is gentle, but then again I don't have a show-prospect so I don't know if you should be using something else. I think it costs around $4 bucks. If this wasn't doing the job for me I'd certainly be willing to pay more but it does the trick for my girl.

I use it every few weeks when she starts to get that 'doggie smell'. For days after her bath her coat is soooooooo soft, and she shines like she's been glossed. I like a clean house, too, I don't particularly enjoy doggie smell, you aren't alone in that!

Re: What shampoo?

Man, I've used "Black Pearl" shampoo on ALL of my dogs. It keeps their coats beautiful and soft for a long time in between dog baths. Doesn't cost anymore than $4-$5 I found it online, and I BELIEVE I can post a link to the product??? JUST TO SHOW what the product looks like, so you'll recognize it. Amazon.com: 8 in 1 Perfect Coat Black Pearl Shampoo and Conditioner for Dogs: Pet Supplies

I purchased it by the case from Omaha Vaccine.... but I love this shampoo... Your mileage may vary....

Re: What shampoo?

Raji is just a pet. We will do obedience but due to his damaged Flexor tendon I have serious doubts his movement will ever be up to par. I am not too worried about giving a few things a try on him. He is wavy anyway. For the cost of the Oatmeal and Black Pearl I can give both of those a run. Thank you.
Prada is just coming out of her fluffy puppy look now. I am totally freaked out about messing up what nature gave her. She is a beautiful baby. I will try and pick peoples brains that show regularly for her grooming needs. I am very confident in my ability to raise a sound dog but a pretty one, well that still feels so out of my league. lol

Re: What shampoo?

I don't like to bathe the dogs too often, only when they really need it. However, I don't like the doggy smell either so in between baths I use Pet Head deodorizing spray for dogs. It really takes care of the odor, it's not just a cover up.

Re: What shampoo?

I use Top Performance, TROPICAL CRUNCH, concentrate. A gallon lasts forever as you must dilute it a bit first. I use thick, dog or human bath wipes in between. The wipes are great for muddy feet and underbellies!

Re: What shampoo?

Miss Raven, our local COstco has that on sale right now. I was just looking at it. The Bed Head shampoos really gunked up my hair so I was afraid to try it out. lol. Maybe I will give it a run. I do use regular baby wipes on them, esp feet.
I have looked at several of those Top performance ones. They smell soooooo good!!
Thank you everyone!
