    Where'd you get that Poppyx? I know the Saint Francis brand, but never come across a Saint Bernard brand?

    At my friends grooming salon we use Fido's everyday shampoo (we use malaseb and aloveen for dogs that have skin conditions), and it leaves a lovely smell, I will bath my boarders in it when they go home and owners have all commented on how good the dogs smell - seems to last a while too. One tip I did learn to make shampoo go a bit further on heavy coated dogs is to water it down, half shampoo half water in a separate container - try to use an old shampoo bottle with the squirty bit in the lid. I always do 2 washes, and the first rinse I don't try too hard, then the second wash is easier to get the lather up and work into the coat, I also use a rubber brush with bobbly bits on it to work the shampoo in (yep technical terms I know lol). I've found this the best way to deal with the full coated poodles and sibes that come in, should work for newfs too!

    I'm going out shopping tomorrow, need to get tonnes of stuff for Batty, he's destroyed nearly all of his toys

    Will see if I can find Allergroom for you and will let you know if I do. I'm happy to grab it and send it down for you if I can find it. The shampoo I was referring to is a natural shampoo with oil of pine tar, tea tree oil, lavender oil and peppermint oil. It does actually smell lovely (I'm not a fan of wool wash either ).

    Problem is anything with a whiff of lavender makes me ill Angela. Hate lavender!!!

    If you could check to see if they sell allergroom, that would be great. One of the shops here sells Aloveen, but alas, no Allergroom. Please let me know. And thank you very much. It is appreciated.

    Shall do If I see it I'll grab it for you. I'll also see if they can continue ordering it in as well so if you need it in future you can get it again.

    I can understand that, I'm the same with green tea for some reason...

    Oh, and I don't mind at all There are a lot of pet and produce supply stores here that usually stock the most obscure things! I'll see if the lady at PGD can give me a list of the shampoos they have just in case they don't have allergroom and will see if she has a recommendation.

    Did you try your local saddlery? Some of the horse ones are lovely. And you can often take the lids off and smell test them... shhh...

    Have you tried googling the shampoo and ordering online DA? There are quite a few that sell it, and I did try to put up a link for you, but it didn't want to happen!
