Ok ladies one for the groomers 😉
When the weather warms up a bit Tam and Willow are having a bath >:D
There are so many shampoos around and some are pricy, what shampoo is the best all rounder and where is the cheapest place to buy it?March 25, 2008 at 9:22 pm #75980
I used a human no perfume/colour shampoo like Nutralia in the parlour with excellent results, even with Westies with sensitive skin. The secret is to put about an inch in the bottom of a large jug and fill with warm water. The diluted shampoo is easier to spread and easier to rinse out. The second trick is to rinse, rinse and rinse again! 😉 🙂March 25, 2008 at 9:28 pm #75981
Brilliant ;D thanks Rough 😉
Always been told you mustn’t use human shampoo but a mate that has shelties just informed me she uses baby shampooMarch 25, 2008 at 9:30 pm #75982
I never use human shampoo the ph is wrong but whatever suits 😮 as you have two hairies I would suggest you either buy off Groomers they sell good quality shampoo’s or Diamond Edge do a really nice green medicated one very cheap and should last you awhile

Baby shampoo Nar can’t get really clean with that and the ph is still wrong ;D

Worst dogs ive seen with dried out skin – bathed in bloody baby shampoo ::) I would go with groomers- lovely shampoos they smell great. But definately dilute gos much further 😉March 25, 2008 at 10:08 pm #75985
Dilute goes for Diamond Edge as well 😮March 26, 2008 at 7:31 am #75986
I know I don’t have hairys but I can reccommend the Groomers Shampoo! ;D It’s lovely and Blu’s skin doesn’t suffer for it after either. I use the oil of evening primrose one and I got that at PAH. As I don’t bath him too often it last ages!March 26, 2008 at 3:03 pm #75987
Thanks ladies 😀March 26, 2008 at 8:55 pm #75988
yup Lisa the EPO one is lovely – mind you wanna try buying it by the litre ::) 😮May 16, 2008 at 6:48 am #75989
Sounds daft but we used Guinea pig shampoo from Gorgous Guineas.
Our dog reacted to most shampoo’s and after a chat with the lady who runs Gorgous Guineas tried one of her natrual made ones that we use for my Guinea Pigs (one I got was in an awful condion, skin complaint).
Worked wonders and smelled lubbly after.July 1, 2008 at 4:21 pm #75990
Hi ya new to the club I am a groomer & I have found a Herbalist who makes the best shampoo ever. They are all detergent free & leave the coat in fantastic condition I never have to use a seperate conditioner on any dog now. It dilutes 10 to 1 so is economical & he makes some lovely fragrances. His name is Stuart Crisp Folklore practice they have a web site give him a try he will post. good luck with your Collies beautiful breed. JandogJuly 1, 2008 at 7:43 pm #75991
what would you use on Obans back end – hes heavy coated (ok very heavy coated) and he gets his knickers filthy
currently shower his knickers minimum of once a week and i use diluted ASDAs own 2 in 1 – it has to have conditioner in it other wise it feels like straw after
dont have a lot to spend and its got to go a long way because hes always mucky and yukkyJuly 1, 2008 at 8:05 pm #75992
wags i buy sometimes the groomers ltd value range – 5 litres for about £8……………..should last even him quite a while Buster always feels nice after using it – and give his @rse a trim so he stops getting o mucky 😉July 1, 2008 at 8:30 pm #75993
well hes so short and he quite often ends up peeing in his coat :-X
problem is if i start trimming it i kind of get carried away and he gets scalped :-[
