I never use shampoo on my dogs. I use a houndsglove( i think that is what it is called) to brush them with and remove dirt, ect. Then I rinse them very well with warm water. Once they are towel dried I use a good doggie conditioning spray( Nova Pearls is the brand I use). Then I brush them again. I do this about once every two weeks and brush them everyday and they smell good, look good, and they never shed. Shampoo seems to irritate and dry their skin no matter what kind I use. If I have to use a shampoo I use Johnsons baby shampoo diluted.

right now i use some crappy brush that doesn't work well. i'm going to buy a rubber curry brush though because i heard those work well. as for shampoo, i use johnsons baby shampoo. a lot of people don't like to use people shampoo on dogs because it may irritate the skin, but i've had nothing but good results.

I give my dogs a bath about once a month...their coats are shiny and clean... I would suggest an oatmeal based shampoo that does not dry out the skin and is great for sensitive dogs that may have allergies...

I use "Sadie's Choice - Oat Shampoo for Pets"

If you bathe your dog once a month, there's no need to brush them. In fact if I brush my pit, her skin gets bumpy and she gets I've never done it since and she's fine.

If you have a border collie or a maltese..then you might wanna get a good brush :))

When I bath, which is rarely, I use a Earthbath brand shampoo and heavily dilute it. I use a ZoomGroom which is designed after a horse brush, a rubber curry with long teeth that grab the loose hair. You end up with most of the hair on the brush not around you. I still brush the kids outside though :).
