|I do b/c I don't want them to get itchy (even though mine aren't either) and I want to make grooming easier for me. Plus, the smell!! I've used everything, but presently am using head and shoulders conditioner (just conditioner not 2 n 1) and/or pantene ice on ice conditioner (most of my maltese friends use this if they want cheap but super nice smelling and effective). I LOVE both of these products right now. I really spend the next week running my fingers through them and saying "man you smell great!!" |
Though you didn't ask, I'll throw in that I use head n shoulders shampoo or pert plus shampoo on them.
|We use Mane and Tail. It is primarily a product for horses but it works exceptionally well with Bailee. They have both a shampoo and a conditioner product.|
|Maybe it's just me, but I tend not to use any conditioner |
unless I have a problem like dry skin or matting. It has
always seemed to me that they get dirtier faster if I use
conditioner. The obvious answer to that is that I don't
rinse well enough, but trust me I do. I also think that it
really depends on what conditioner I use. The "rinses" vs
the actual "conditioners"- rinses come out better and quicker
and not so much with the conditioners. I love when my dogs
are soft even though they aren't supposed to be, they seem
more cuddly. I haven't been bathing as much lately. Maybe I
should go do that right now!
In short, the daily rinses (like daily clarifying by suave) seem
to be best for me. One of my dogs is very oily - so that plays
a big part too.
|I use whatever conditioner I have handy (human or dog), diluted well with water in a mixer bottle. Then I squirt it all over, and rinse really well. It seems to give a little softning, but not attract dirt or get oily. |
Now that we're not showing in conformation, it is fun to use conditioner on all the coat and make him soft and smelly!
Today was bath day - I have a nice clean Chewie, and 2 clean bassets as well!
