So we have a great dog lake by us and I really love it because it's low impact with the sand (for Seamus) lots of room to run and splash (for the girlies) and Mickey and Odin actually LIKE to swim in it (as opposed to the pool Suspect !) My only issue is... it's obviously not as clean or sanitary as our pool and I get a little weird about just rinsing them off with water and having that be that, you know?

Is there anything that I can either spray on them or like a conditioner that won't over dry the coat? Something I can use once a week or so?



Here's our lake!

Which lake is that? Is that the one in Dania that has dock diving too?

Not really sure about a spray, but I use the bath wipes for Frankie. Especially after a nursing home visit just to quickly and easily wash him up so we don't don't carry home yucky stuff.

It's Snyder Park, pretty much right next to Ft. Laud airport. I haven't been to the Dania one, i've only driven by... but I think this one is prettier.

Furminator has a Waterless deShedding Shampoo & Conditioner. Spray it on and wipe it off with a towel. Makes them nice and clean....maybe that'll help?

I have a spray-on waterless shampoo that I use between baths when Dakota gets a little stinky. I don't know the brand but you just spray it on and brush it into the coat and that's it. I haven't had any issues with it and I've used it occasionally for the past 4 yrs.

I was putting away dog shampoo when I thought of Earthbath. I looked online and saw these:

http://www.earthbath.com/dogs/dog-spritz.php

Not sure if that would do what I need? They also have a foam but that looks more like a bath thing, not a in-between thing. I wrote them and asked what they thought. As well as some samples Laughing

The waterless shampoos will take off a little of the surface dirt and will help with the stinky-ness...the spritzer you mentioned sounds like it could do the same thing...

I bought a cheap waterless shampoo from Petsmart - the Petsmart brand - and it smells pretty good, but I like the Furminator brand smell better....and the Petsmart brand left a tacky feeling on their coat, whereas the Furminator brand does not. The Furminator brand also leaves their coat feeling soft as it's also a conditioner.

I think Spritzer you mention also moisturizes their coat...so it sounds just about the same as what the Furminator brand. No residue, fresh scent and moisturizes coat...AND it's all natural!

I haven't tried other brands, but if Earthbath is cheaper, I'll definitely want to try it! I can't find the Furminator brand in the pet stores near me anymore, so I'll be looking at trying Earthbound next!

I don't think Earthbath is cheap but not sure what furminators prices are. Earthbath sells their products in petcos and petsmarts as well as other places around me, but I figure those 2 are more nationally known. Hopefully i'll hear back from them after this weekend!

Earthbath said they were at the local pet store 1/2 mile from my house at the town center....but when I got there, the owner (yes, I know her by her first name because I'm in there so often) said she never carried it.

So I ended up buying South Bark's Blueberry Facial, which is once of the choices they give you for shampoo at their self wash tubs. It's all natural, PH balanced and safe to wash their faces and body. It has coconut oil. jojoba, aloe, blueberry extract, avocado and vitamins A, D, and E....smells nice and although it costs $19 for 12 oz, you dilute it 1 part/8 parts water as a shampoo, and even more to wash their face.

That sounds like it smells great! I have so many dog shampoos it's insane...

I think they just list places that sell Earthbath products, maybe not specific ones?

It does smell nice. And I also have a lot of waterless shampoo! If I knew I was going to get a pet dryer, I would have so much waterless shampoo!!

You have 5 dogs...you have a reason to have a lot of shampoo!
