Best shampoo for Chows?

Postby Calift » Fri Dec 11, 2009 1:39 pm

I recently gave my chow a bath at the petstore (they offer a full tub/table....and let you do it yourself)....it worked out well and Niki was way less stressed than she usually is at the groomers. Best of all, she is finally clean!

The pet stores provides an average shampoo/conditioner....but I was wondering if anyone here had any recommendations for Chow-friendly shampoo? Or any other sort of grooming products? :?:

I will try to post a picture of my (finally) fluffy girl, but she hates the flash of cameras #-o

When I wash them at one of those places I choose the most natural shampoo they have. And, I usually choose a puppy shampoo because it is gentler.
More important that the shampoo is really the rinsing. (Rinse, rinse and rinse again.)
And, really important that they are dry all they way down to their skin. Expecially under the ruff, tail and privates.

to be honest since working in a dog spa i will not use any chemical based shampoos any more, I buy mine now from an aromatherapist who makes shampoos to suit the dog and his her needs

We use the equate brand of baby shampoo for our Kringle. Works great and he smells good too! Very gentle.

I make my own, I grind up oats (into a powder) and mix it with a water in a 2 liter bottle. Works very well. You can also add, 1/4 of tea spoon of baking soda for the smell
