Default What Shampoo do you use? And where do you buy it?

I normally just use kid shampoo on Muffin and wash him in the shower. But, I wanted to try a force air dryer on him bc he was blowing his coat. So, I went to a self-serve dog wash and they gave me a plum shampoo that smelt AMAZING! I didn't think to ask what kind. LOL.

Anyway, I was just wondering what kind of shampoos everyone uses. I don't mind mixing myself, especially if it saves $ in the long run.

I like having really good stuff. I bathe Jackson weekly, and with his type of hair, I just like "the good stuff".

My favorite is Chris Christensen, it smells amazing and it makes his coat so incredibly soft. I got it for a great deal from Cherrybrook.com.

I usually use Cloudstar's Buddy Wash and Buddy Rinse. I think I got it from Jeffers, but can't remember. Unfortunately, nobody around here carries it. Lately, tho, I've been using Hypo Plus (from Groomer's Edge), followed by Buddy Rinse. The manager at Cherrybrook recommended it to me last year when Caleb was really itchy.

I use Groomer's Edge Emerald Black on every dog I own including the non-black ones (because short, hard coats don't really pick up dyes well), because I love the way it smells... Something like 45 bucks for a gallon of the stuff that dilutes 32:1.

Probably not helpful if you have a floofy-coated dog with high white markings.

Which Chris Christensen do you like best? I read the descriptions, I was thinking maybe system 10? Have you smelt that one before? LOL. I'm really going for smell. They had little trial size kits, I might buy one to see. LOL.

For the buddy wash, is that just for itchy skin? He's not really so itchy, I actually try not to wash too often bc I fear drying him out.

And yeah, Muffin is fluffy red & white... LOL. Black shampoo probably wouldn't work for us. :P I was browsing petedge though. They say they have samples, I may call them up and ask them for more info on the samples. Then buy a gallon if I like any.

Sizzle, where do you buy yours? I've heard someone else say they like that brand too.

I use buddy wash too. Found it at Home Goods for a couple bucks. In the almost 5 years we've had Lucy, I'm only on my second bottle of shampoo! (The first one was avoderm)

BioGroom here! Love love love the smell, it stays in their coats for days/weeks, and makes the fur so soft. Plus, I don't like the $12+ price of most other quality shampoos.

Dang CaliTerp, 2 bottles in 5 years?! I feel like I go through a 1/4 of a bottle with Lizzie's thick fur sometimes!
