Interestingly, with all the expensive shampoos and conditioners I've bought, I've been bathing the troops in Dawn dish detergent (with Olay) since we had a first ever problem with fleas. They are cleaner than they have ever been (when I bathe them, not the groomer), and shiny (except for Bailey whose coat is more cottony. Go figure!

Regarding washing two at once - are you nuts?
I have enough to do one at a time.

Geri I use Dawn every other bath. Love it. I use the Shimmering Lights the other times. Course since Rosie has been shaved down, I could wash her with a washrag like a baby.

Funny, I love the Dawn baths. They come out squeaky clean.

They look great Suzi!

I haven't taken a drowned rat (i.e., bath) pic of Cey in a while. They do look so funny and pathetic all wetted down! And so clean and beautiful after! (Just about to post an after-bath pic of Cey on the forum myself actually!)

Ever since their bath both Maddie and Zoey have been itching really bad. I thought I got them rinsed out well . Maddie is the worst I don't think I'll use that shampoo any more. I also dont like the way their coat feels it turned from really soft to sort of sticky.

Have you ever tried bathing them together or is that crazy? Now that I have Riley, I was wondering if it was possible or completely insane to even try.
I was thinking about doing that but the problem would be one would have to sit around wet after.It would be a cute picture.

Julie, why don't you try doing two together and then letting us know how it goes. I don't even want to think about how it would go at our house. I had enough trouble after one afternoon of snow and taking them both out to play, and their legs and feet got full of snowballs. Trying to get them herded into the bathroom and taking turns getting them into the tub and melting the snowballs off was a huge enough challenge without adding shampoos and conditioners and full body wet downs into the mix.

Oh, Suzi, I am so sorry to hear that. I would get them shampooed again, pronto. I don't recall Finn having any itching following the use of it - I just didn't like the gummy way it made him feel. In fact, I think he was still in the tub and I thought 'ick -I don't like this stuff' and rinsed him and rewashed him with something else. I was hoping it would work for your girls since it sounds like they have different type coats. At any rate, I am glad you didn't spend the money to buy any yourself! I do really like the Pure Paws Ultra Reconstructive shampoo - I bought a huge bottle of it at the last show - and then my own ISO conditioner. I might have to try the Dawn on them. I think that is what I already have in the kitchen.

I really liked it for about the first 4 days now its has a weird texture. But I really appreciate you sending it because I would probably have tried it . I'm so not in the mood to give them another bath . Hey for kicks I will give them one together!
I wish I had baby shampoo here I love the smell.

Well, you are much more brave than I to bathe them together!! I hope you have your camera handy - but I am thinking you are going to be wishing you had ten arms!
