Ok then everyone stop using dog shampoo and just use human shampoo if its sooooooo great. I don't care about research. I care about my experience and what I have personally seen as a groomer.

I prefer to use dog shampoos, but I don't worry about using people shampoos. I used J&J for over year without adverse effects on my toy. On someone else's dog, dog shampoo only of course, but on my own.. No big deal unless it in fact is causing adverse effects. I started to experiment with diff dog shampoos and found that although baby shampoo got her clean the diff dog shampoos did different things 😉

I used J&J (an hydrating shampoo version) on my yorkie for more than five years with great success. I had used before KW, and I had good results, but the price was too high ( at least here in Spain). I bathed him almost every week and he had great hair all his life. After the J&J shampoo I used a good KW conditioner, so I cut the expenses in half. Of course it depends on genetics and also on the sensitivity of the dog. With my whippet, at first sight a breed with a less demanding coat than a yorkie's, I had a lot of skin issues. Dog shampoos, KW shampoos and baby shampoos like J&J made his skin itchy, dry or oily depending on the season. I bathed him just every month in summer or every two months in winter and the solution was a bio shampoo, with natural ingredients and low chemicals for human hair.

So far Im still using Johnson's Baby shampoo because the breeders dog shampoo made his skin itch and flake. But perhaps it was just a poor rinse job..idk. I will soon change to a good dog shampoo with conditioners if I can find it locally.

The products I ordered have just arrived; I haven't tried the shampoo or the conditioner (both Chris Christensen) but I have used the Ice on Ice spray to brush Ruso and it's amazing! Very easy to comb, clean effect,it's really great. Thanks for the recommendation!
By the way, Rusito is 14 weeks old, is he too young to go to a groomer? He's got all his vaccines.

I think it's fine to to take your puppy to a groomer to get him used to the setting and what goes on there. I didn't get Walter until he was almost 16 weeks old, and he was about 20 weeks the first time we took him for just a bath, a little trim so we could see his eyes and a minor nail trim. I think easing them into it is good!

Bentley was having skin/allergy problems, his groomer suggested J&J Baby Shampoo and Pantene Regular Conditioner. She said never put on full strength, it's too harsh for their skin. And to put the conditioner in a spray bottle same strength, and not have to rense. I'm going to try it this next shampoo and let you know how well it works. He always looks nice when she's done.

The earlier the better! We like to start seeing puppies as soon as they get the last of their shots so around 12-13 weeks. The younger they are the quicker they build a trust with us. We have people who bring their puppies in at 6 months or 9 months old and they have never been to a groomer and the owner wants a full haircut but the dog now is older and completely freaks out about every noise and touch and the owners are upset and frustrated that we can't get a haircut done. Where as when they start at 12 weeks old they get a slow introduction to grooming with out being overwhelmed and then by 6 months old they are way more tolerable for their first full groom.

Or we have also had people who wait until the dog is 9 months old never been to a groomer or have had a brush run through them, so they are pelted down to the skin and their first experience of grooming is being stripped naked. It's terrifying for both the dog and the groomer.

Heck no he's not too young. I started grooming my litter at 4wks so as they got older it would be second nature! However that is not always the case with breeders that seem to mainly care about money. I see it all the time fluffy puppy faces that have never been touched/ and puppies terrified of having it done. When I got Eve at 6wks( yes I know young) the breeder started grooming them at 4wks too. It didn't even faze her when I gave her her first grooming. My advice is that all puppies should be groomed early and often whether by the breeder, groomer, or owner.

As someone who's poo that also has allergies i use a combo of chlorhexidine shampoo, sugar scrub, and therapeutic mud. It seems to work really well for her altho I may switch out shampoos and use sebozole shampoo instead. I see how well it works for clients dogs and it smells sooooo good. I also am adding conditioners as well
