Murphy is now one year old. He's full on blowing his coat and I have a challenging time keeping up with it. Until recently I felt I had one or two shampoos that would work well, but I hadn't found a conditioner that I really liked. They all felt sticky, on his coat and that seemed to attract dirt and encourage mats.
My problem got even worse when we left him at the kennel for 4 nights at Thanksgiving. We got stuck in winter travel coming home from NJ, so he had to stay an extra day. The people at his kennel are really nice to Murphy and me. Murphy also seems to really enjoy playing in the yard during day care hours. We don't worry about him there.
Buuttt, they're not groomers. I have them brush him once a day, but it's not the same. So when he got home he was pretty rough.
I brushed him out about 3 times to get the worst of it, and cut out a few mats that were around his neck and flanks that were just too matted to tease out (no one but me would even notice, and I can't find the snips anymore). Then I washed him up. I had a left over bottle of Thick n Thicker that came in a sample pack from CC. I honestly didn't even really know what it was (or is). But I had no other conditioner because I'd used the Spectrum 10 up, so I applied according to directions.
Maybe because Muprhy's coat is very wispy, this product has really done remarkable things. He combed out easier after the bath, he seemed to dry more quickly, and two days later he still looks clean and he's combing out in 5 minutes instead of 25. It seemed like with the Spectrum 10 conditioner he was looking kinda road weary even the next day and I was really working hard to comb him out the next day.
If I'm not supposed to use the Thick n Thicker as a conditioner, please don't tell me and burst my bubble! I will probably buy more because it's really helped me manage Murphy's grooming challenges. It might help someone else too...
