I use Chris Christensen products on Louis. I first use the White on White shampoo, make sure to really scrub the feet and mouth. The I use Spectrum 10 Shampoo, and Spectrum 10 conditioner. They are made for drop coats. Any tearless shampoo will be good for the face. I use SouthBark's Blueberry Facial. I force dry his hair, and use a stand dryer on his head. I spritz Ice on Ice as I brush. The combo of products makes his hair SUPER soft. My husband can't get enough of Louis's hair after a bath. He can't stop petting him!

I've thought about sending my dogs to a groomer even though I'm a groomer, but I am scared to do it because I'm scared they will cut their hair. I imagine Louis coming back with his beard trimmed, topknot trimmed, eyelashes cut off, pointy feet, and baboon butt.... no thanks!

Thanks for everyone's comments! I really want to make it to Year 1! I saw a maltese when we got the Santa photos taken that had looooong hair. I asked the owner how long it took to grow and she said 3 years!! My goal is to get him in full coat... so maybe this thread will go on for another year lol

I have been using CC Spectrum 10 also recently and LOOOOVE it! seriously. LOVE it.
I asked for a full size bottle of the conditioner for Christmas! lol I only have the trial size and I'm almost out!
I am doing a 'trial' right now of sorts too! I haven't fully combed Tillie out in 2 days (I still clean up her face). She had a bath a week ago... I'm just curious how long she can go between combings. I have ALWAYS fully combed her out everyday... with this CC combo I am finding that she can easily go longer, the question is HOW much longer? lol
p.s. she is FUULLLLLY past blowing coat, otherwise I would NEVER even consider going more than a day without combing her out!

I must be a bad mom! I brush/comb Louis once a week. He is usually bathed weekly or every 2 weeks.
