Groomer & George Recommends:

Shampoo and Conditioner. For shampoo: Puppy Love Smell Good Deodorizing Wash (lavender), Love Me Bathe Me Collagen Wash (orange & oatmeal) or I'm Sensitive Hypoallergenic Wash. For conditioner: No Fleas Please Anti-Itch Wash or Pet Me I’m Soft Detangling Rinse

Shampoo:

If your dog is smelly, use our Puppy Love Smell Good Deodorizing Wash as the lavender will help with minimizing odor and refreshing your dog’s natural scent. The lavender is also great for healing skin conditions as it acts as an anti-inflammatory, anti-dermatitis and antiseptic. Lavender is also a natural flea, tick and bug repellent. If your dog has allergies, use our I'm Sensitive Hypoallergenic WashIf your dog tends to scratch a lot, use our Love Me Bathe Me Collagen Wash as the orange oil and oatmeal will soothe and support dry, sore skin.  

Conditioner:

For a smooth, long/medium coat we recommend using either of our conditioners. If your dog has a smellier coat use our lavender based conditioner No Fleas Please Anti-Itch RinseIf blow drying your dog or if your dog has sensitivities use our Pet Me I'm Soft Detangling Rinse

 

Tips on Keeping Coat Fresh and Clean:

Brush often if prone to matting. Shampoo and condition based on water and climate type. Click here to read more on water, climate and bathing schedule (blog post). 

 

Why does water type and climate matter? 

Similar to your (human) skin and hair, depending on whether water is hard or soft, and also depending on whether the climate is dry/cold, dry/hot, humid/hot, humid/cold, humid, etc. (you get the picture), THESE FACTORS will play into how often you bathe your dog and which products will create the biggest positive impact in outcome. I.e. do you live by the sea, do you live by the mountains, do you live in the interior? Is it winter or perpetually summer? Jump here to read further.
