I just started using it maybe 6 months ago. Up until then I was using Biogroom Superwhite along with a human conditioner - Palmers Coconut Deep Conditioning protein Pack.
I still use the Superwhite, but usually use the CC Spectrum 10 conditioner now. The Biogroom conditioner worked great when he was younger, but now it seems to weigh his hair down after a few days. Also, even though it SEEMS more expensive, it is so concentrated that a little goes a long way.

It definitely makes a HUGE difference ifyou don't rinse them well. While we were on vacation in the fall, I gave Kodi a bath. We were having trouble with thewater preassure in the shower, and I didn't get him rinsed. Well enough. Itwas VERY obvious when he was dry... Not nearly as silkyand shiny as he usually is.

For those that didn't see my post about two weeks ago. I started using "Aussie Moist" conditioner on Cassie and really liked how light and soft it left her coat. You can get it at the supermarket. I think she has a cotton type coat too. Thanks for the Fur Butter recomend. I'll keep it in mind.

I have been using that too! And I like it just as well as any thing I have ever used.

You may not have to do that, but Gucci gets a bath every week, so buildup is an issue with her coat and the gazillion products i've tried

Did someone want me to send them the Ziggys? From what I've read it works great with non cotton spots coats?
It is such a good idea to pass on products that we don't use. Augies and Finns mom just sent me a nice box full of all the shampoos and conditioners she doesn't use. I had really wanted to try the pure paws H20 and had actually told her about it. Well she bought it and didn't like it so I finally get to try it.She also sent the combo she use's on Augie which I think will be nice for Maddie. And about four other products. It really is Christmas! Thank you Linda.

Nothing its all the same. Some more expensive human shampoos have less water and more ingredients that don't damage or dry out the hair. I still haven't tried baby shampoo on the sisters but I want to.

You're welcome, Suzi! Now I have room in my bathroom for a couple more! Seriously, I hope they will work for you; if not, maybe you know someone who might like to try them.

Thanks- great suggestions to try. I want to try a whitening shampoo on Misty, who is white with just a little silver in her ears, so that should be fine. But- has anyone used whitening shampoos with dogs that are light colored, or partially white? Is it OK to use? I thought it might also help lighten their coats, but would it fade instead?

I posted a pic of my 3 dogs. Misty and Lily (the white one and the black and white one) are part Havanese...or at least I think Misty is, Lily's DNA test showed she was- however reliable that is! Anyways- they both have the Havanese coat. Maxie (the tan dog)has Poodle hair.

Can I use a whitening product on all of them? Lily has a lot of white. Or maybe a product that is for "lightening" would be better for Max and Lily?
