If the matting is severe I donít completely rinse it out. Hope this helps. Bathing them with some other brand of shampoo doesnít work because these two are formulated to be used together.
I like Isle of Dogs, too. I donít think mine is quite cottony, but he has a very fine, dense undercoat. The problem I have is that I go through it so much faster than Spectrum 10. I can imagine it works well for a cottony coat because it leaves the coat feeling very light and it isnít a heavy conditioner but it still makes combing easier.

I also love the fragrance of everything by Isle of Dogs except for the ďReplŠscentĒ spray, which is so strong, but I guess itís supposed to be, because itís an odor spray I ordered by mistake. It must really work on stinky dogs! Fortunately, mine doesnít have an odor problem

I have a kitchen sink that is "swimming pool" size for a small dog. I may give it another try. I like the bathtub because Patti can Shake! Shake! Shake! Lots of very helpful information about bathing doggies. Thanks!!
