Default Your favorite shampoo and conditioner

I'm showing Keeva UKC in a few weeks. Do you guys (especially those that show) have a favorite shampoo and (rinse out) conditioner? Nothing leave-in as that's against the rules in UKC. I'd especially like something that will brighten her red and whites, so a good color enhancing shampoo would be ideal.

Thanks!

We have quite a few people who show that come in to buy Isle of Dogs stuff from us. LOVE the smell, but haven't personally used it myself.

I've had Isle of Dogs recommended but I just can't swing $25 for a medium sized bottle. I know it's supposed to be really nice though.

It's expensive, but I love Isle of Dogs for Dance. It's probably good for the Dobes too, but I won't use it on them because the bottle I got was pretty pricey for the size. Otherwise, I've had good results with Bark 2 Basics stuff also. And most of the time I just use heavily diluted dawn dish soap followed by a good dog conditioner (can't think of the brand I'm using at the moment and am not home to check, but I love it!) and get the same results.

Show people might have other/better suggestions, though.

You guys are just determined to make me spring for Isle of Dogs, huh? We'll see what my next paycheck brings.

It's not completely miraculous or anything, but I also heard tons of good things about it and decided I should try it. It makes Dance super soft and clean feeling and seems to leave her extra shiny. I've had similar results with other shampoos, but the Isle of Dogs works slightly better somehow. Not a must have IMO, but definitely worth a try just to say you did! I can't imagine if it was my main shampoo. I'd go through a tiny bottle in no time with three dogs bathed monthly, haha.

I've heard very good things abotu Blueberry Facial. I know someone who shows corgis in UKC and AKC and she says it whitens and makes colors brighter. I have not tried it myself yet.

I use a horse whitening shampoo and some sort of color enhancing shampoo. I'll check later to see what brands they are.

I've used both Quic Color and Rio Vista on horses and really liked the results. Rio Vista makes color enhancing dog shampoo and I was thinking about just getting some of that.

I love Bio Groom shampoo. It's all I use currently. Smells sooo good.

I like Nature's Specialties, specifically the Almond Crisp formula for pretty much every dog I own. I've been told Cindra is good for corgi coats, but I found it to be awfully drying.

I've never been impressed with Isle of Dogs. I find most of the formulas soften the coat too much, and the reps don't know what kind of shampoo to recommend for each breed. Cardis and Pems aren't supposed to have soft coats.
