Hello all, I was wondering what shampoo's you guys all use. I am looking
for a good shampoo that smells good and leaves the coat very soft.

I have also heard a lot about the Ice on Ice conditioning spray, but I read
on their site that it really doesn't have a sent.

I also remember reading a post on a Natural plum shampoo or something. Just
wondered if that made the coat soft and if you found out what magazine it
was in?

Currently I am using Coat Handler shampoo and conditioner and also use it
for the spray on conditioner but the spray bottle they have for it leaves them
soaking wet.

I'm using PetSilk right now but I'm going to try Bless the Beasts next. For daily grooming I've hard a lot of good things about Ice on Ice. I will be ordering some of that soon.

Bless the Beasts' Official Site
The Rusty Dog
QVC- Detangling Shampoo
QVC- Soothing Shampoo
QVC- Nourishing Shampoo

Most people use the Detangling shampoo. I've also heard that the fur polish pomade is REALLY good. Someone said the shampoo has a conditioner in it so you don't have to use an actually conditoner.

I use Bless the Beast and love it. Not only do you not have to use a conditioner but it helps getting the tangles out. Plus it smells good (to me, anyway). As Lady'sMom said the pomade is wonderful. All I have to do is rub that on a mat and it makes getting the mat out such much easier.

I would just use a tiny bit of the Coat Handler 15:1 conditioner diluted w/water in a spray bottle or the Ice on Ice.

I love Coat Handler products. I have found you have to play with the concentration to get it right for each coat. 15:1 is a guideline.

Other shampoos I like:
Pure Paws
Crown Royal
Pantene
for a clarifying shampoo I used Tresamme

JMM when you use the Coat Handler as a spray on conditioner, do you
use their spray bottle? That is what I have and it just Soaks poor Cosmo, or
is he suppose to get that wet??

Plus Cosmo does have a more cottony coat.

I just purchased Plum White and have used it once on my malts. It has a light coconut smell that is not too strong. I think I like the way it made their coats look and feel. I also have used Coat Handler and still use the conditioner. I also just started using Ice on Ice and I like it better than the coat handler spray.

I am now using Plum Silky shampoo. I purchased it from the groomer because shipping was outrageous! I love it! :D I have also tried Pet Silk whitening shampoo & conditioner and Bless the Beasts. Neither one of them have much of a scent to me. I love how Plum Silky makes her smell!
and the smell lasts! And it leaves her sooo soft! I also love the Pet Silk leave in conditioner - this smells great, to me- but they have since changed the formula so I'm not sure what the rainforest scent will be like. I did purchase the Coat handler conditioner and dilute it for a leave in but I miss the smell of the pet silk, especially since Abbey potties outside and needs something to freshen her up!

Peanut has a cottony coat, his hair use to be super straight as a puppy, but now he's more fluffy and Bless the Beasts is GREAT!! I got the set from QVC. I really like that I don't have to use a separate conditioner anymore. I got the soothing set because they were out of the detangling (sp?) set when I ordered and the boys never get mats anymore. I can't wait to try the detangling shampoo. Maybe it's just me, but I find that they smell cleaner longer even after playing outside.

I just found out that is what my groomer used the other day, only
she used thier dirty dog, then their oatmeal creame rinse followed
by their spray on conditioner. I am leaning towards the Plum and the Berry
tearless, oatmeal creame rinse I haven't decided on the spray conditioner.

So you haven't even tried the fur pomade yet? You'll love it! I used to swear by Petsilk's Liquid Silk, but the fur pomade is much better.

I recently switched to the Chris Christensen products and I love them. The day to day shampoo smell like coconuts, the after bath smells a little like cherries. Sassy smells wonderful after her bath. Yummy

I switch between three different shampoos and conditioners and I love they way Toby's cottony coat feels.

I use Pet Silk's Whitening Shampoo and Conditioner. I use this product about once a month.

I use Matrix's So Silver. It is a human shampoo for silver or white hair. It really does brighten his hair.

Finally I use Biolage's Hydrating Shampoo and the Conditioning Balm. Again, this is a human product.

These products have really made a difference in his coat. I was using the Liquid Silk (the human version of it) and I actually like the feel of it when I don't use it. I also have the Pet Silk Spray in Conditioner and frankly, I am not too fond of that either. I have found that by using just shampoo and conditioner on Toby, I achieve better results than when I use other products. JMO

alright LOL there are just too many choices. What does the
Blest the Beast smell like?

I have checked into the Natures Specialties and they are outrageous in
shipping if I am reading correct. I haven't checked yet but I have a hunch
that my groomer just uses it not sells it. So I might have to lean towards the
Bless the Beast. Is it concentrated? I would appreciate all and any info you
can give me on it

thanks everyone

I just noticed that have a little sample kit for $10. When I order my #006 and the Ice on Ice I'm thinking of getting it. It would be a nice way of trying the product with out having to spend a fortune.

This is the one I'm thinking of getting.
Our product sequence for breeds not requiring a color treatment:
1.  Day to Day Shampoo 4 oz.
2.  Thick N Thicker Foaming Protein 4 oz.
3.  After Bath 4 oz.
4.  Ice on Ice 2 oz.[/B]

I'm not wild about the smell of the Bless the Beasts shampoo. It's not a bad smell (to me it smells a bit like carpet shampoo) just not a great smell like Petsilk. I don't think the fur pomade even has a scent.

I don't care that much about the smell, though. The products work great on Lady's coat.

I've switched to CC products as well! I really love the products better than anything I have used, including Bless the Beast. There are more steps to the CC system, but the result is really really worth it.

Now if I can only afford all the brushes I need!
