|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).|

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.

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

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