1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

What shampoos do you guys use. I have been using the furminator shampoo and I like the smell. However to really get the effects of the furminator shampoo it calls for a bath at least every 2 weeks which to me is a bit much and I'll admit im way to lazy to keep that up. Also I went running w kiara and let her swim in the flowing creek by my house, big mistake. She smelled like death for like a week even after a bath... So I want something that's a good deodorizer.

Brady, if you can keep Kiara from swimming and rolling in stuff you should only have to give her a bath every few months Wink Huskies are good about keeping themselves clean!

i have some oatmeal brand stuff. or i use the stuff at the self wash place.

We use Tropiclean shampoos and they're amazing. I've even used it myself a few times Razz

Another good one is Therapet, sold only by dog.com - I get the melonball medori one and its the best shampoo I've ever smelled - for dogs or humans. And a little bit goes a long way.

The groomer at work gave me some good tips... He said do a big brush, rake, and brush again before a bath. Give a nice bath and try to work out more hair with your fingers... And then rotate brushing and raking (on a dry dog, never a wet dog) until you're satisfied. This works the best for us.

Go pick up a rake and shed n blad, those are thee only 3 you need since you have the furminator.

Our self wash has some rubber nubby tool to use when your are shampooing that also haelp workout the hair, be ready to get soaked, don't wear anything u care about Smile they should have a high vol vac there use it as long as they let you, even when you think they are dry they are still wet!

Luna was scared of the bath at first but we put her Kong in there with her and she loves it. We make our own shampoo with ground oatmeal, baking soda and water and it works great!!
