Any advice on what shampoo to use and do people use conditioner?
How near to a show do people wash their Briards?

Hi

I was at the BA open show on Sunday and had this very conversation as Dylan had been in the dyke and just had to have a bath before the show (normally I would bath about three weeks prior to show) I used a shampoo for him from Dezynadog but was told to use a really cheap basic shampoo (Tesco cheapest) or evern lemon fairy liquid and definatly no conditioner the coat needs to be harsh so this shampoo strips all the rubbish from the coat. Not yet tried it but as the tips came from extremly experienced Briardist I will be using them - hope this helps.

I use Malacetic shampoo, I used it oringinally for Bo who was always scratching and chewing her coat. Since then she hasnt done this.
Conditioner very occassionally, but only on the ends of the coat.
I never bath Aslan before a show, as it drys he coat out too much.
The black ones I do bath more often as they can get scuffy coats. But this is very rare before a show. Even Crufts.

As puppies I do bath more, as it cleans the coat and encourages growth, the same as brushing the coat upwards, to get air to it. and rid of any dirt. Smile

Hi

We use Doreen Page Black for Harsh Coats for our black boy and Caramel Creme for our fawn boy. I tend to bath at least two weeks before a show but I only do it once every six months as it strips their natural oils.

I don't tend to use conditioner but if I do I only use it on the ends.

I am afraid I don't agree with the fairy liquid approach - it is very stringent even for our hands, so I think it will not be good for their skin. I would think it would dry their skin too much.

Anyway, that's only my opinion.

Hi Martin

I get it from the Doreen Page website - it contains essential oils and smells absolutely gorgeous.

Just Google Doreen Page and you should find her site.

Hope this helps.

Debbie
