"But, if you let them dry off first, most, but not all,  of the sand falls off. "

"I use shampoo and conditioner on both of my dogs every time I take them to the beach. It's the only way to get the sand off of their bodies -- especially off of their undersides. It's time-consuming but necessary.  "

Effects of Salt Water on the Coat

We're taking our doodles with us on our beach vacation next week and the VRBO we're staying at is right on the water.  Looking forward to some fun in the surf, just not sure whether I should be concerned about the effects of salt water on their coats.  Should I give them a rinse afterwards?  My brief internet research was inconclusive and primarily anecdotal. Anyone have the real scoop?See More

"You received some good advice from Olga.  As she mentioned organ meet is so very important, but it doesn't have to be fed every day, just properly balanced over time. Ideally 10% of the overall diet, with 5% being liver and the other 5%…"

Ginny Nightingale replied to Mark Wilson's discussion Spaying prior to a year old
"Well, just going by my experience--not the literature--I am sure there is variation--for example, when Lyric was a breeding dog, her heat was always a 9 month cycle and now her daughter is the same!"
