My shampoo cocktail:
One bottle of Suave shampoo (any of the red colored ones - cherry, raspberry, etc.)
One cap full of Infusium Leave In Hair Treatment.
One Teaspoon of EcoSense PreSpot (this cuts the smell).

I love the Solid Gold shampoos- they smell so nice! Kenic and Earthbath have some really great products too.

I know that most people already know this, but human shampoos are not good for a dog. A human shampoo is pH balanced at 5.5 while a dog shampoo is pH balanced at 7. Dogs have 3 skin cell layers while humans have 15, making a dog much more sensitive to skin irritations. Some people have no problem with human shampoo on their dogs but most often these dogs rarely get baths. Some dogs will immediatly react to human shampoo with itchy dry skin and others become irriatated after prolonged use. pH's below 7 are acidic. To compare what can happen, imagine washing your body with vinegar which is around a 3 on the pH scale. The first time may not be so bad, but after time it is going to irritate the skin. A pH of 7 is neutral, and the optimal pH for a dog.

Solid Gold has shampoo? I never knew that.

I second the recs for Buddy Wash and Earth Bath. Mango Tango is delicious, and the Buddy wash Lavender and Mint is amazing. Middie got washed early this week and still smells yummy - even AFTER rolling in horse poop with Leo and then getting rinsed off. It's pretty amazing stuff.

Has anyone used the Rosemary and Mint from Buddy wash?

Can you tell a big difference when conditioner is used? I know with long hair you can but what about short haired dogs?
