Thumbs up

Riely's hair is very dry. I give him the 3V caps daily and feed him NB Sweet Potato and Fish and also yogurt. I have used Coat Handler and that didn't seem to make a huge difference on his hair, i have also used suave shampoo and CC daily moisturizing conditioner, after bath and the CC silk serum with no big improvements. The front of his coat is silky, but the back down to his butt seems dry. I read that while grooming if you get alot of hair in brush that the coat is too dry. I use biogroom leave in spray conditioner when brushing daily. Is there anything that anyone can reccomend to use to get more moisture in his coat?

I had posted this on another forum and one of the poster's had mentioned that one of the Top Breeder's alternates between Herbal Essences "Drama Clean" shampoo and conditioner and Dove "Go Fresh Therapy Energize" shampoo and conditoner. So i figured what have i got to waste. So tonight while i was at work i purchased both of the shampoos and conditioners. I gave Riley a bath tonight and decided to get whatever products i have been using out of his hair and so i used the Herbal Essences "Drama Clean" shampoo and conditioner. What a difference in his hair, the conditioner is very light weight and didn't weigh his hair down and it wasn't so light that it didn't condition enough. Riley's hair has never been so soft as it is tonight and my son was amazed at the difference on Riley's backside. I will be giving Noelle a bath tomorrow night and will use the same shampoo and conditioner and hopefully get the same results since her hair is completely different. I give this shampoo and conditioner two . Next week i will be using the Dove shampoo and conditioner and give you my review on it.

Are these the people shampoos? I'd like to try them on Sophie who has a somewhat cottony coat.

Are human shampoos safe to use with flea products or do they wash them out?

I am a huge fan of the Dove products that were recommended. I use it on show day and it leaves the coat looking amazing. One thing I have found though is that I get a bit more matting, esp those little pinhead knots. The drama Clean seems to be worse than the Dove. But otherwise, i love the way it makes the coat feel, soo silky soft. And you can't beat the price!

It's always a good idea to use a clarifying shampoo at least once a month to strip away
any residue or buildup of product. I think you will find most of those products work
better if you do this.

I use Sentinel Heartworm medicine for the pups and it also helps to control fleas and that's all i use for the pups nothing else for fleas. You would think living in Florida we would have a problem, but we don't.
