Mine eat raw and food in the ears just can't happen. I use a snood. Currently I only have 1 snood and 2 spoos. Which means they have to take turns. They weren't a fan to begin with, but when food is involved, usually the food wins them over. Now, basically jump into the snood, because they want to be the "first" to get to eat their dinner. They only have to wear it for a few minutes, so keeping it on isn't a problem at all.

Have you tried Coat Handler Conditioner? it dilutes 15 to 1, I keep some in a spray bottle. It really moisturizes the coat and detangles really easily, and it smells wonderful. It's a leave in conditioner, so keeping it in a spray bottle is really handy.

I use the shampoo and conditioner on my crested, his coat feels like silk, and boy does he ever smell lovely. His coat has never looked better, my favorite shampoo and leave in conditioner ever. I buy it by the gallon

I use DermOrganic. It is too spendy to use on the dog but L'oreal has cheaper one called Eversleek I think I will get some and try. It is only her hindquarters that are extremely coarse.

Products designed for humans may not be safe to ingest, but a pooodle may find it tasty.

Jacamar - good point. Shasta loves the body lotion I use will drive me buggy trying to lick me after I put it on. I will do a "test run" on the back of my hand by letting her smell it to see if it is something she finds appealing to her taste buds. She is one picky dog when it comes to what she puts in her mouth. I had never heard of a dog that wouldn't eat shrimp or tuna before I got her.

Cdnpoodle - Leave in are great for Shasta because she hates being rinsed. For a dog how loves to swim, it is amazing how she hate being hosed off (no matter how gentle the water stream is.) I haven't tried Coat Handller but am game to try. I ordered some from Amazon. Was curious why the called it "small dog" though.

Default Human products for dogs

While you can use many human products on dogs with little to no side effects, I personally wouldn't simply because of the cost! Human products are made 'ready to use', versus many animal products that are dilutable. Yes, you may pay $30 for a gallon... but you can turn that into 20-100 16oz portions. Even if you were buying a human product for $.99/bottle, you would be saving money. Washing and rinsing is easier when you are applying a diluted solution... and get the dog cleaner than applying a thick goop and trying to spread it all around.
There are so many quality dog products available for all of you needs... from hydrating shampoos and conditioners, to waterless/no-rinse shampoos for quick touchups.

I am not sure if Moroccan Oil is considered an essential oil, but you need to be cautious using essential oils with pets (especially if you also own cats), as their livers cannot process and eliminate the oils like our bodies can. Essential oils can be toxic to cats.

I use coconut oil to condition Brody's skin and coat. Much cheaper than Moraccan oil and it's all natural! I love it for my skin, too. And it won't hurt him if he licks it! I know it's not a "human product" like you asked about, but I think it's a great alternative.
