    I usually use Buddy Bath, but they don't sell it here for some reason. So I got Earthbath but I don't like it at all. I've tried two kinds- oatmeal and the mango and it just doesn't work nearly as well. Summer starts smelling bad less than a week after her bath and it wasn't like that before. She smells great right after the bath but it doesn't last all.

    So.... any recommendations?

    I just use some oatmeal shampoo Ive had for a while now. I was actually curious, don't want to hijack, but does anyone use, or recommend that horse shampoo? The one you can use on your own hair? I forget what exactly its called. But is that a good shampoo for dogs?

    I just get my better half to buy whatever is cheapest for me.....straight shampoo, no conditioner. In a pinch I can even use bar soap...and I get told how I'm hated to be able to do that and have good looking hair. :D

    Im a big fan of eqyss shampoos. I have heard good things for mane and tail too. Biogroom is good. Desert sudz, top performance, espree. I have used and liked all. I have even called around to alot of places (eqyss, espree, bigroom, etc) and gotten free samples before i bought.

    I have found that with the JRT and whippet coats they do just as well and if not better with good people shampoo. And after trying many many conditioners the best that works for the whippets is people conditioner.

    I have tried buddy wash and its ok.. but for me was more expensive and didnt' do as good a job as the dove that I was using on me. I have tried biogroom, and many others not coming to mind....

    I have Spa Renew at home right now for Sierra (and the cats, when I'm brave enough and they're stinky enough for a bath).

    I like it, but I prefer Buddy Wash.

    I really liked Bio-groom for smell It lasted a good 2 week's on my Silky. My Yorkie had an allergic reaction so we stopped using it.

    I just got Tropi-clean The smell is amazing while there in the bath After there dry, they just smell clean Nothing amazing. Since it's soap free & gentle I will keep using, it Also left them REALLY shiny & soft.
    We got the berry.

    i just bought some groomers edge shampoos and conditioner from kings...
    love the price and the stuff i bought is also high dilution...32:1 plus it does NOT contain lanolin which with the cresties is a big concern (most cresties are allergic)

    i am thus far impressed, smells great in bath and its now a good 4 hours since, still smell it, nice but not over powering (i dont like a strong smell)...ill let you know how its going in a week smell wise...

    i paid 6.99 for a 16oz bottle...and it dilutes 32:1 effectivly, nice suds at that dilution too!

  16. During flea season, I use dawn dish soap a lot, since it kills flea's.

    I use a lot of Tropi-Clean's products. I find they smell great, and leave coats shiny and soft. For Jake, who has a lot of allergies and dander, I use the Oxy-Med made by Tropi-Clean, I use both the shampoo and the oatmeal medicated conditioner. I love it!

    I also use a lot of Kenic brand products, which are all natural. I use their conditioning protein shampoo, which I love. It makes my guy's coats smell so great, and their hair is so soft. I also use their Emu oil spray, which gives them a great smell, and shiny coats.

    I used to use Earth Bath, because it smells great and is all natural. But like Laurelin, I noticed that smell didn't last at all, and some of my guys were smelling later on that same day. I also found that it didn't seem to clean them as well, some of them still felt kinda dirty, and their coats weren't as shiny as other shampoo's.

    So, I really recommend the Tropi-Clean line and the Kenic line as well.
