Ok I have an airedale terrier , and well I;m starting grooming her really seriously for the show. well I had problems with haire to grow up ( legs, and mustache). They told me that if I bross her every day and spray her a solution of 1 part of conditionner ( human one) mixed with 3 parts of water , that can help the hair grow faster. They told me too that science diet is not good for long haired breeds. I change to eukanuba. do you really think that's help ? and it's not bad to the hair making that every day ???? Other question: They told me that for the jacket I can clean it with alcohol ... I didn't try I was a bit afraid about it ... They told me to claena the jacket with dishes soap , but only puting the soap and moving with a bross into the hair without water ... ( I wash my pointer with that , but puting a lot of water) I really don't trust people that's why i prefear ask , before having bad results! I never wash my terrier jacket but this last time she's very smelly ... So that's why I would like to know. Before I used to wash her with a special wire haired shampoo , but it was worst the hair were so soft after. Thank for help!
