    I use Buddy Wash's doggy perfume in lavender. All the dogs smell amazing. I found Buddy Wash shampoo to be too drying for Middie's coat, and the conditioner was more drying than some shampoos I've used. Loved the smell though.

    I currently use the furminator shampoo. It's like $10 a bottle. I bathe him every 2-4 weeks and have gone through most of my bottles of shampoo and conditioner in 6 months. I love how he smells after - it keeps the nasty dog odor contained for about 3 weeks and gets rid of tons of undercoat.

    No. I bought it because Mick had sensitive skin, and most shampoos dried his skin out and made him extrememly itchy. I use the lavendar & mint. Others have already mentioned how great it smells.

    Right now I have Pet Head 'Brightening Shampoo' I picked it up for a third of the cost and I really like it. It does the best job of keeping Radar looking white which is a constant battle and it does a great job of brightening up Desoto's blue coat. It smells nice to.

    I just buy whatever I think smells good haha.

    Right now I have:

    Buddy Wash (which I don't like. It smells good after, but it seems to dry my guys out, even diluted.)

    Earth Bath Hypoallergenic (boring, cause it's unscented, but the Dobes do best with unscented. I use this on the parts that I don't use vet shampoo.)

    Bark 2 Basics (a coconut smelling one, reminds me of summer. Works well and is lasting forever because it's so heavily diluted.)

    A random assortment of vet shampoos. I think three different ones. I can't remember the brands, but only the Dobermans use these on their backs and bellies because of a skin issue.

    I'm tired of my shampoos though. I bought like a gallon of the Bark 2 Basics and I'm only like a 1/4 of the way through after having it for two years LOL. I thought I'd go through it quickly, but then discovered the Dobes don't do scented shampoos well, and I dilute it so much that it's going to last forever and ever. It's a nice shampoo, but I want a new smelling one!

    Earth Bath here. My favourite is the Mango Tango, or the Puppy shampoo. OMG the puppy shampoo smells like candy.

    Normally I have to order Earth Bath online - they don't carry the Mango Tango at the Petco a few towns over anymore. But I just found a bunch of Earth Bath at TJ Maxx last weekend and... bought it all. Including a couple of refreshing sprays and waterless shampoos. Whoo!

    I looooove mango tango. I think I still have half a bottle of it kicking around.

    I love the smells of the nootie shampoos and sprays, so yummy. I have to resist buying shampoo though as I have several bottles of stuff on the go and izzie doesn't get washed often.

    I had awesome luck with Chris Christenson Everyday shampoo. Classic would always get awful dandruff after a bath and so it would always make him look awful if I bathed him right before a show. Switched to the Everyday shampoo, and no more dandruff!

    The current dogs don't need it though and now that we ran out of this last bottle I had, we went for more fun stuff. Nootie Sweet Pea & Vanilla. NUM. We have this in the spray but I'm so happy to have it as a shampoo too. Makes their coats so soft and the scent lingers. <3

    I've been using Coat Handler - we also have a bottle of Buddy Wash, which I don't like quite as much. I think I want to try out some Nature's Specialties products next.

    Cynder is bathed in Virbac's Allergroom shampoo. Otherwise, her coat gets nasty.

    Otherwise, I just pick up what smells good. Lol I think my latest grab was an Oster oatmeal 4 in 1 shampoo. Makes the two littles super soft and shiny and doesn't make Gracie's allergies flare up!

    I have a secret love for the cherry Crazy Dog shampoo, too.

    I like Clean Start. Smells great (very clean smell), the smell stays on the dog (especially if you force dry), and the coat is so clean and shiny and soft afterwards.
