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.
