  • Coat Conditioner

    My 16 month BC Charlie has a beautiful coat but his rump and tail are very dry and frizzy. I've read somewhere about Premier Rose Oil Conditioner (an equine product) which is meant to also work wonders on dog coats. Does anyone have any experience with this product?

    Hi
    Never heard of the product you mentioned, so can't really give any thoughts on that, sorry!

    The products I use on my Australian Shepherd are 'Equinade Glo White Shampoo' and 'Equinade Show Silk Protein Conditioner' - Both designed for horses, I love the way they work on his coat though, would highly recommend them, especially the whitening shampoo (You'd probably want to dilute it though and don't leave it on too long or it might stain your dogs coat). The conditioner is great too, leaves my boy feeling divine

    When I'm grooming other peoples dogs (I'm a groomer) I tend to stick with products actually designed for dogs. My favourite brand at the moment is 'ProGroom'. If you're looking for shampoos I would highly recommend these two...

    The clarifying shampoo smells like oranges and is a great all rounder, leaves the coat feeling nice and clean but not stripped of oils or dry. The whitening shampoo has a Jasmine scent, does a pretty decent job at whitening fur but minus the risk of staining your dog like the horse one I mentioned

    As for conditioners the two main ones I use at the moment are the horse one I mentioned above and Pure Pets oatmeal conditioner which is a really great one (nice and moisturising) but I'm not sure if it's available to the general public, I buy it wholesale for my business.

    These two may be worth a look too - They're on my list to try out soon

    Also just thought I'd mention that diet plays a huge role in a dogs coat condition so perhaps look into what you're feeding him and see if there's anything you could do there to improve his coat. When I switched my dogs onto better food I could see their coats getting softer and shinier within a few weeks

      Thanks for your very detailed reply! Think I'll give the rose oil Conditioner a try. It's a leave in so I'll try spraying on then brushing through. Will repost once I've used it for a while for a progress report. Food wise, Charlie is on Blackhawk adult dry food and is thriving to the point where he needs to shed a couple of kegs.

        Do give us an update with how the conditioner is going, I'd be very interested to know My Kelpie has a crap coat, I've had some success helping her coat with Essential 6 mouse.
