I personally really like the Bio-groom shampoo's they have great ingredients, smells and many are tearless.

I just bought Natural Oatmeal Shampoo (by Four Paws) and it works GREAT -- along w/ Miracle Coat leave-in conditioner .. really nice stuff. Used both today on both my girls. They look so great and smell so yummy (i dont know about that now, since they've been rolling around outside). :thumbsup:

i freekin hate all shampoo!!! rod's skin is so sensitive. he breaks out in hives with each one. i have to use a non soap shampoo. which totally sucks, 'cause when his allergies kick in i need to use medicated shampoo for his skin. that stuff helps with the big irritations but then makes the rest of his skin look like he has chicken pox. whats worse???

Yeah its a spray. Got it at Petsmart. And it was the last one there, so im guessing its mighty popular. Of course, i understand why after using it.

Here are the products I use...

Top Performance Oatmeal Shampoo.
-good for dry itchy and sensitive skin.

The STUFF
-a great leave in conditioner, great shine.
-be careful where you spray it, if it gets on a linoleum or tile floor it makes it very very very slippery.

If you don't want to buy a finishing spray/leave in conditioner, you can make your own. Mix 4 parts water with one part gold Listerine in a misting bottle. Make sure it is the Listerine brand and that it is gold, the other colors and brands contain sugar, which will make the coat sticky and yucky. Just mist the Listerine spray lightly and wipe down. Voila, instant shine. It also acts as an antiseptic spray to keep the coat and skin healthy.

Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap. It's cheap, all natural, smells great, leaves the coat super shiney, there's nothing in it to make them sick if you don't get it all rinsed off, and you can use it for yourself too.

Added bonus - the label makes GREAT bathroom reading.

Ditto. The peppermint or hemp soaps are great for everything from washing your dog to washing your windows to getting oil paint stains out of clothing.

Good idea. I use that stuff. I always worried that it would strip too much oil out of the fur. Guess not. You can never tire of reading that nut jobs labels anyway. :)
