    Default Dog Shampoos That Last

    Um, what I mean is dog shampoos for smelly coats that leave a nice scent that lasts a good while.

    Have bathed Inca yesterday and she was brilliant. Tied the leash to the window latch above the bathtub and she just stood theere wagging her tail throughout her bath, good as gold. Most impressed.

    But I do not like to bathe dogs too often. I've seen one shampoo with oatmeal and baking soda which sounds okay for smelly coats, and I've seen another specifically for smelly coats on the internet.

    Any recommendations?

    Kohnkes Kleen Sheen.

    It's made for racehorses, and designed to be used every day. You can use it diluted down to 1:10 with water which makes it economical (especially for great big dogs! ) and super gentle on the skin and hair. And it smells nice.

    And my favourite bit - it makes white white. Really white.

    And no I don't work for them, I just have really big dogs with lots of white so love this stuff!!

    The things horsey people do to make their Horses pretty.

    I've seen Megan Jones spray hair glitter on her horses' rumps to make them pretty for the dressage judges. Sigh.

    I use J&J baby shampoo and Conditioner 2 in 1. Seems to last a while with Frosty and I think she's less tempted to roll in stinky stuff for a while because it smells like me.

    Lately the only wash she's been getting is swimming at the beach and a bucket wash in Adelaide tap water after. And today she got some Revolution perfume. Who knew that stuff is waterfast after 2 hours - bonus. Frontline you have to wait 12 to 24 hours which means Frosty can't be hosed off after/during the morning walk when it's hot.

    And if you really want a nice smell that lasts and a soft coat you can't go past Pantene... expensive for big 'uns though!

    Thanks Natty. Will check at the local rural supplies tomorrow for it, and give it a go. This organic concoction that all the pet shops and vets are selling is absolute crap. Smells so-so, lasts for about 5 minutes (I kid you not!) and hardly lathers at all. Grrr.

    I bet there are some show people that use pantene on their pets. Not sure about the stings the eyes problem.

    I refuse to use Pantene on me, just in case I catch an NZild accent. It wint hippin ovrnit but ut wull hippin. That and the big hole it would make in the wallet.

    I do...

    I use Pantene on the salukis for shows, the "smooth and silky" variety.

    And it does make then smooth and silky... and they smell nice. But they don't get the accent... not yet anyways.

    Pantene would be equally good on the cavies kat, plus you have different varieties for different coats. Smooth and silky for selfs, the curls one for rexs or texels etc. You could go nuts and have a pantene party!
