Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
Dear Doodle Lovers:
What do you recommend as the best shampoo for Doodles? I like to bring my own shampoo and conditioner to the groomer and I was using Best Shot. I like it very much but I thought I would check in with the wisdom of the group and ask your opinions. Sophie sheds, she has wavy, not curly hair. It is much more like a Golden Retriever than Poodle. I appreciate your help. Thank you.
Wow! This post is interesting! I use Milksheen 4 in 1 shampoo, but like Sandy says, it does have a funny smell to it. Although after I put his conditioner on (from Chris Christensen) I can't smell it anymore. My biggest gripe I guess with the Milksheen is that it doesn't really lather up, so I keep putting more & more on, which I probably don't need to do.
Sandy anybody who has used Milksheen - Do you get the Milksheen shampoo to lather up??? Is there a different shampoo that lathers better?
When I used to bathe my former dog, I used Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo & I loved that smell.
A long time ago, I heard that baby shampoo was bad for dogs, and always wondered if that was true. Apparently your kiddoodles haven't had any issues with it, have they? Which brands do you use?
I do not bathe my dogs as often as many people do. Maybe 6 times a year. I've used the basic Johnson and Suave. I dilute these too.
Another reason is that pet shampoos seem to slide that insecticide ingredient into some of the products. Human products are not permitted to do this in everyday shampoos.
Right now I have Suave and I've used Johnson Green Baby Shampoo. I love to use the Shampoo/Conditioner, no more tangles types.
My Spud, HATES the smell of many of these products so I have to be careful. He literally GROWLS with the smell of Mane and Tail
Really though, if you can afford it, there are great products out there for dogs. You can find some of these mentioned in the Grooming Group here on DK
