when you spray this on do you do it until the dog is soaking wet or just a light spray?
do you wash it out?
how often should it be used?

excuse the questions ;D

It depends on how recently Fritz was groomed.. if not too long ago then it doesn't take as much... but I give him a good spray all over and then run it down to the skin.. I use a plant sprayer from homebase... it feels like I spray him a lot but one mix following Val's recipe and volume of water lasts me quite a while  :ok: (i guess that might also be cause I forget to use it  :-[ )

I would say.. and be sure to rub it otherwise it won't penetrate down the hair  ;)

I really should take a photo of Fritz's face when i spray him.. it's classic  :D
