Default Shampoo/conditioner/finishing spray for red toy?

I've been scanning the threads on recommendations for shampoos and conditioners. Nature's Specialty seems to come highly recommended, but is impossible to find in the UK. Tropiclean does seem to be available, though, as are Plush Puppy and Eqyss. Can anyone recommend a brand or flavour for Poppy, who is a very dark apricot/red? She still has a very soft, puppyish coat, although it is beginning to fluff up more easily (hurrah!). I don't like anything too perfumed - can't stand the shampoo I have at the moment as it smells of ersatz strawberry. She doesn't tangle or mat much - she gets brushed through every day, and I keep her pretty short - so colour protection from the sun and coat condition are the main things I am looking for. I love this site - so much expertise all in one place!

If you find something to keep her coat from sun burning, let me know! I have researched just about every product on the market and I what I found is that to get true sun screening, you pretty much have to totally wet the dog down with the stuff. That is not practical for a Poodle coat.

If you keep your dog trimmed up, you won't see the affects of sun burning on the coat. As far as fading.... only genetics can determine that.

Thanks Cbrand - one less thing to buy, then. It's not usually a problem here in the UK, but we are having an unusually sunny summer ...

It will be interesting to see how her coat clears - both parents were fairly dark, and at 12 months she is still very red (except for the sun-kissed ends anyway!).

I've just discovered Isle of Dogs don't deliver to the UK, so there is another highly recommended product I can't get.

what happens to a coat when it sunburns? I have noticed Millie's ears and topknot have gotten lighter from being in the pool/sun...almost like red highlights

The hair turns orange. You mostly see it on dogs that are going to fade in color like Browns, Blues and bad Blacks.

yeah she has definitely been bleached by the sun - you can actually see that the new hair growing in is very dark brown but the tips of her fur are orange-ish. hmm..

My browns are they same way we spend a lot of time out in the sun at the beach and the sun down here is so strong.
Of course I don't know how much longer we are going to be able to go to the beach as the tar balls have started to arrive here and if you can't get in the water what's the point. I am still in disbelief over this spill what a disaster it just make me want to cry seeing our beautiful beach ruined.

Fjm, I was almost positive they (IOD) was available over there! As a matter of fact, one of their reps was at the World Dog Show this weekend. I can ask Monica about it, if you'd like. It's WONDERFUL!

Yes please Cameo - it is expensive, but with only two tinies to groom a bottle would last for ages. It may be they have a European distributor covering the UK - it is their main US site that seems to ship absolutely everywhere except here. I'll take a look at Les Pooch also - although a UK-based distributor would save a fortune on shipping costs! What do people think of the Tropiclean and Eqyss ranges which I can get hold of fairly easily?
