    as a groomer i get my shampoo from a lady in adelaide who is a chemist, she makes the shampoo and conditioner herself and uses only natural products, works a treat. i also will use maleseb on itchy skin and thanks for the tip on using it as an ear cleanser i had not heard of that before will give it a try

    I use a range of shampoos, depending on the dog's coat/skin condition. The main one I use is Fido's Everyday shampoo which smells nice and leaves the coat looking and smelling wonderful. I might also rub a little aloveen conditioner into longer length ear and tails. Malaseb is a great one to use on dry or itchy skin, I try to leave a wee bit of residue which helps. Diluted malaseb is great as a spot on treatment for heat spots or itchy patches and paws.

    How often would you need to bathe a greyhound? They have very short fur don't they?

    I bath my fosters as soon as they arrive, then I only bath them if they get stinky from rolling in something! As greys dont normally smell, it is a long time between baths! And yes, they have very short coats, and very thin skin.

    Thin skin...Does that cause any issues?

    P.S. Good on you for fostering! How many are you fostering at the moment (including the poodles? ) Would love some pics!

    Their thin skin tears really easily... which can look really nasty if they collide with something running etc. But it does also heal very nicely.


    For anyone who has big dogs with lots of coat like me, there are some really great horse products out there which are more economical and effective.

    I use "Kohnke's Kleen Sheen" shampoo which is fantastic. One wash for my white dogs leaves them brilliant and gleaming. As it is designed for racehorses who are washed daily it is super gentle and I only need a tiny bit (not much more than I would use to wash my own hair) diluted in water to wash a whole dog.

    And Champion Tails silver white conditioner is awesome. I brush it through when the coat is full of it, no knot, no pulling and an awesome looking coat once it dries.

    I always get lots of compliments on their coats in the show ring so I must be getting something right!

    We buy Aloveen shampoo and conditioner at the chemist, it works really well and smells great, with a woolly dog its really important to use something that gets them clean without stripping the natural oils. My husband also uses it, i dont know how good it is for him, but it works really well and it cured his dandruff!
