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!
It lathers up really nicely! Plus, Lucy's fluffy but she's pretty darn small (cocker spaniel sized).

Dunno, maybe my husband's just a magical shampoo-er! (he lathers, I stuff treats in the doggy's mouth!)

I always bought whatever's cheapest at the pet store and hypoallergenic.

Yeah, I probably go through like a bottle or so a year. He gets washed a lot in the summer bc he's gross, he stays cleaner in the winter. And I usually double wash him with shampoo. I don't know how much I will go through without Walsh, but Muffin def used most of the shampoo anyway.

I usually bring the shampoos with the busted caps home from whatever's in the cabinet .

Buddy Wash is good. I do love Tropiclean shampoos (the neem is good for repelling flea/ticks!). I have some stuff from John Masters Organics that is good. Planet Dog Peppermint is yummy.

Fresh N Clean smells a bit like 'dog shampoo' (har har) but the scent seriously lasts like a month. I can smell it on MYSELF three days later.

I buy it directly from the company, or Amazon now since I have Prime.

It's decently priced, and most of the competitive groomers I worked with use it exclusively.

I'll be honest, I've had terrible luck with Chris Christensen, Pure Paws, Espana Silk, etc. They always tend to make my dogs break out in hives. (Even after proper dilution. I find most people don't correctly dilute their shampoos.)

I use Douxo Calm, it helps a lot with Pip's allergies but I use it for Squash, too. In the summers Pip gets at least a bath a week but in the winter they barely get bathed at all.

I think my favorite shampoo that I've used is Topline Canine. The sad part is I'm pretty sure they don't make it anymore, so that's ultra helpful, huh I have a bottle of shampoo and conditioner and I get a little bit sad every time I use them, because once it's gone.... it's gone. But man it smells good (and the smell lingers) and makes Juno very silky.

For Happy I use Mutt Nose Best and I really like it, however the scent only seems to last about a day.

I just buy locally. I love hitting up TJ Maxx/Home Goods for cheap shampoos. I bought this shampoo a couple years ago for a couple bucks and I still think it is wonderfully delicious smelling:
I've never seen it anywhere else and know nothing of the brand but I like it. It's another one where the scent seems to last a while.

The plum stuff could have been Kelcos Plum White I used to use it all the time.
Now I use Chris C as well, I have white on white, peppermint and sugar cookie lol, and ice on ice spray, I love that stuff! For I use the CC stuff, Gage's giant shedding butt gets whatever I can find, lol, I have buddy wash, and some happy tails stuff, some pet head stuff, oh some john paul stuff, for Diesel I adore, by far my favorite for his particular coat, I makes him soooo soft and he smells fantastic forever.
