hi guys!! can you recommend some good shampoo/conditioner and refreshing spray for puppies? I noticed that Yeager's been scratching himself a lot, I already got him some Frontline plus, but it might also be because his skin is too dry? right now I only shampoo him with Perfect Coat Antibacterial Deodorizing Shampoo. I know, it's kind of random :unsure::blink: Are there any good ones at Petsmart:blush:?

thanks!! :D

I like a few shampoos. I absolutely love the Mango Tango earthbath shampoo---that is my favourite. I aslo like the Woof shampoos and the TropicClean is very popular.

Earth bath products smell great and my dog is so soft and clean after using those products.:thumbsup:

Its spring here in Fl, and everybody is itching. The 4 fur kids, 6 humans. We think it is from the oak trees here. I actually have visable bites on me. Not flea bites, these are different looking. May not be your shampoo, but it does sound a little harsh. I use a white doggie shampoo from an upscale dog shop, and a conditioner diluted from my groomer.

I use All system whitening brightening shampoo on tobi or sometimes johson baby ...hmm... for itchiness you might wanna try dead sea mud spa on your fur kid ? I heard lavender oil helps too. But dead sea mud works on my friend shih tsu as her dog has skin problems always scratching...now it gets better :chili: hope it helps .Else another alternative is bring to soak sea water for a while

Hi Sarah-I just saw this...I use the following: Spa Lavish Facial Scrub for the face.
I did try the Spa Lavish shampoo but found it very drying, so personally I don't like or even use (anymore) their regular shampoo.

For shampoo, I use Plush Puppy (The Natural Conditioning Shampoo with Evening Primrose) and Coat Handler (the Clarifying Shampoo). Sometimes I use a little Suave coconut shampoo (it smells pretty good, costs $1 in the US and isn't drying)..but I mix it in with the Plush Puppy shampoo- all of which I dilute about 10-1.

For Conditioners I use the Coat Handler conditioner and also the Plush Puppy (Natural Silk Protein Conditioner). All of these work well for us, and haven't been drying to the coat. I dilute the conditioners as well.

I started using the Coat Handler and Plush Puppy only because I could actually buy them here, as my options are very limited..but I'm pleased with both.

I used earthbath oatmeal on yeager for the first time last week, although he still scratches :mellow:, the shampoo made his hair look shinier and less staticky than before, and I love the smell!! It's not fruity, but makes me feel all soft and warm :wub: I also got earthbath's deodorizing spray/conditioner in lavender scent, it does the job :)

Thanks! I really don't know what else I can do for his scratching anymore ._. I think I'll just wait a bit and observe. Boy, the dogs in Singapore really have it good!! such luxurious lifestyle :w00t:

thanks for the detailed recommendations! I'll eventually try more products, but right now all the great products I read about on the forum made me @[email protected] I also started diluting the shampoo, and I really like the results :D I didn't end up getting the Facial Scrub, couldn't find any in stores and didn't feel like paying for the $5 shipping(that's half the price of the product!!). Maybe I'll find it someday :)

Are you in San Francisco proper? If so, there's a pet supply store on Post Street, near Union Sq that may have it and also one on Hyde and California St. in Russian Hill. They both carry a lot of things like the Spa lavish..I'm not sure if they have it now..but you can try.

How do you wash the face without getting the whole dog wet?
I use a bowl of warm water and a soft cloth (a muslin cloth) to clean her face..and then once it's wet from the cloth I put a dab of the spa lavish and massage with my finger into the hair. I rinse the same way, with water and the cloth until it's all removed.
