CelticGlory I was told in the petstore here, that if you shampoo your dog, the only shampoos that are really worth it are soap-free shampoos. It won't dry out their coat if you have to bathe them often. He also said that if you can't use a soap-free one or can't find one, when using regular shampoo to use conditioner (one that is appropriate for animals).

doggiedad i think you should use the natural and organic shampoo. my dog gets
a bath 2 to 3 times a year. in the summer he plays in the water from
being squirted with the hose.

when my dog is home he never wears a collar. i don't think crating
a dog with their collar on is safe.

i use Earthbath. i thought it was Earthborn untill i read Cassidy's Mom post above.

Cassidy's Mom I don't have solid black dogs, but we use Earthbath shampoos.

juliejujubean you can add a bit of coconut oil to your pups diet and it will make your dog shine! Also, a high quality food helps as well. we feed currently raw in the morning and acana at night.

Rufpup We feed Blue Buffalo and Taste of the Wild with human food thrown in for good measure. Dog gets 1 egg a day with 2% milk (about 1/2 cup). His black saddle shines!
Very rarely bath unless he rolls in horse poop or gets skunked...maybe 1-2x in summer, and maybe 1-2 times rest of year, max 4x a year. I'm not picky about shampoo, if it's good enough for me, it's good enough for him, same w/conditioner.

Then I put a little SSS Oil Gel in my hands, just a little, and rub it on his back/body/mane, then rub him down one more time w/towel (in case any excess) and when he dries his coat coat is so soft and shiny. I honestly don't buy "dog" shampoo, I just use whatever I use. I also use the SSS Oil Gel on his ears/face in summer, keeps flies/gnats from camping out.

I can imagine! I would, except for all his skin issues. I avoid anything and when I have to wash him it's Malaseb shampoo.
Thanks for the recommendation!

I love a good bar soap. Not going to use it on Hans, but I am getting it for myself with Santa's gift card
