No, Im more of the collar addict type. I am picky and a snob about shampoos for my dog though. I can see myself going to a Ton more though when I get my puppy and grow a show coat on him.

I buy a lot of shampoo. Some because it is being discontinued, others because they smell good, are new etc. I honestly probably have enough shampoo to last the rest of my current dogs lifetimes and a couple more dogs.

I will probably start hoarding different whitening shampoos until I find one I like for Tango's coat. The one I have now is EarthBath Light color coat brightener. It doesn't have any blue-ing in it which is the best way to whiten a coat so I'm sure I'll find something else to try soon. They have whitening pet shampoo at Walmart for like $4 which might be worth a shot if I follow it up with the EarthBath. I love the scent of the EB because it's a lavender based scent (Which of course just smells like the general "sweet" to me and my broken nose)

Following a whitening shampoo with a regular shampoo is a good idea, it helps keep the coat conditioned and keeps it whiter longer. Something about closing up the hair shaft or something like that.

For brightening shampoos, Double K whitening rocks!! I use it on the black dogs and it makes them look so nice! Also, a good REmoisturizer is the best for conditioning IMHO!

I'm not really one to hoard shampoo, but somehow I did end up having like 8 or more different bottles at once. Not sure how that happened. Now I've finally almost run out of all of them (only have two bottles left, and both probably only have a bath or two left in them), and went and bought a big jug of shampoo and conditioner each at the dog show a few weeks ago that should last me a long time. My dogs are bathed monthly, and I also bathe and tidy a few Tollers and my grandma's dog every couple of months, so I go through a decent amount of shampoo... but not enough to warrant having that many bottles of it sitting around. Especially since in the summer, I often use diluted dish soap on them instead (works better on them when they're filthy).

Me! I love pet shampoo!

I get ticked every time I give Frodo a bath about how much is left cause I can't justify buying more until my current bottle is done, lol.

I never bath my dogs, honestly, in 4 years, I have bathed one dog, Katy, once.

Yet I have 3 bottles of shampoo and yes, they smell gorgeous!
