I use petsilk and biogroom. Biogroom works great and smells nice and clean, but Petsilk lasts longer. Your lil peanut looks CUTE! You can also try a slicker brush.

Here is what I do, once a month I use the Petsilk shampoo and conditioner on Toby because it is a whitening shampoo.  Then for the other three weeks, I use my own shampoo--Matrix's Biolage Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioning Balm.

To make Toby's hair soft (not to mention a nice clean smell) I use BioSilk Repair & Shine.  It is a professional product for human hair and it can be a bit pricey, but a little goes a long way.  I also think PetSilk makes a product for pets that is basically the same thing.

I've been taking Paris to the groomer every 2 weeks.. but I am going to start to groom him myself. Lucky me, I have all three products you mentioned and uses them on myself.

Now Paris and I will smell the same!


One question, how long do you keep the balm on Toby before rinsing off? How often to bath him?

I also use Biogroom Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioning balm. I love it! I have also had great success with the following products:
- Plush Puppy whitening shampoo
- Chris Christensen moisturing shampoo and conditioner
- Various Pure Paws products
- Vellus

I use the Pure Paws Whitening shampoo, conditioner and spray conditioner exclusively. I love the fresh smell and the high quality of the products.

If Pico was in long coat I would probably try the BioGroom Pico's mother and siblings are in long coat and their fur is not nearly as soft and fluffy as Pico's. It seems the longer coats need more intense conditioning.

In the summertime Lacey gets a bath once a week. This is my routine:

Every other week I wash her with E-Z Groom Crystal White Shampoo and conditioner her with the Silky Almond Conditioner. Love the smell of the conditioner. I asked my breeder about the PetSilk but she told me she did not care for it...left a residue. I have read and heard great things about PetSilk though.

The weeks I don't use the E-Z Groom I use Paul Mitchell. I use the Instant Moisture Daily Shampoo on her body and on her face I use the Baby Don't Cry Shampoo. I use the Instant Moisture Daily Treatment as a conditioner. I try to leave it on her for the full 5 minutes. She is getting pretty good about it.

Right now I use the E-Z Groom Ultra Rich Leave in Conditioner. I have found though that if I don't dilete it her hair is a little stiff. I am going to order the E-Z Groom Blow Dry Conditoner next week to see if I also like it.

I have read that we shouldn't use human products on our little ones...not good for their hair. But Lacey's hair feels wonderful. I know the first two times I took her to her groomer her hair was very, very, very white afterwards but the feel was very dry. Had to trim her because of the dry hair. Now if she goes to the groomers I take my own products for her to use.

I have been grooming Lacey myself so I have been looking into products...but everyone says their products are the best. So far I think I like the Pure Paws and Chris Christensen products. I need to look on their websites to see if I can get travel size products. I don't want to spend a fortune on products to find out that I really don't care for them.

In the winter time Lacey gets a bath every 3 weeks. Lacey had two yeast infections, one in each ear, and my vet told me to take it easy on the baths. She was fine until 2 1/2 weeks...she needed a bath but I wanted to wait until Sunday (bath day) so I could take my time. She had her bath this morning and she is clean.

I think I might try the Biogroom. So many of you use it and seem to be very pleased with the results. I myself love the Paul Mitchell products on my hair but the next time I go to the store will pick some of the Biogroom up. Where I live we have a discount store (Marc's) that carries the Biogroom. Some Paul Mitchell too, but not the one that I use.

Hi we use Bless the beast detangle shampoo.
It keeps the hair clean and smells great . The best part is both puppies have not matts. This was our best find. I have created and other discussion on this with more details.

I bathe Lady weekly. I also wash her face and paws in between baths. Most of the time I use Pantene Smooth and Silky (green bottle), occasionally I use the A#1 All Systems whitening shampoo. I use Mane & Tail conditioner. I use Absolutely Natural shampoo on her face.

I love Pet Silk's Liquid Silk. Lady has a more cottony coat so I am always looking for products to add a little shine and softness. I use a little coconut oil on my hands to when I brush her.

I have also recently tried using Paul Mitchell's Gloss on Lady and it makes her smooth and silky. I use it on my own hair and when I'm finished, I run my hands through her coat, just enough to give it some sheen. I love the shine it leaves, plus it tames the puffiness a bit.

Here is a link to Absolutely Natural shampoo. http://www.absolutelynatural.com/

I love it because it is very gentle and cleans so well, plus rinses out quickly. I put a little bib on Lady and pop her in the sink for her face wash and I can do the whole thing with squirt bottles of water instead of the sprayer so she doesn't get soaked. (I use mustard/ketchup bottles for water since they are larger than the Sally's ones)

Has anybody ever tried the Absolutely Natural Glossifer? Gloss works wells on Lady's more cottony coat How does it compare to Pet Silk Liquid Silk? and I was thinking of trying it when I order more shampoo.
