I bought a dog a few months ago. He is a bit feral cause his owner didnt do anything with him. He was just a yard dog and never really seen ppl at all apart from his family.

My boy Amos. Pics are when he was a baby, then the stacking one is when I bought him, then the head shots is how much coat he has grown in 2 mths.

He still needs more neck coat and more on the back of his pack. I will do full body pics in a few weeks.

I've heard that Halo Dream Coat helps with growing coat on poodles. I think someone mentioned it on groomers.net and i've heard it from a girl I work with at the grooming shop.

I bought some to try with Vega...so we'll see!

Thanks guys.
Pamela, I have 8 toy poodles

Aidan I use human shampoo. Not sure if you have pantene where you are, but its beautiful on human and dog hair.

Dream Coat is a coat supplement made by Halo, they do make shampoo though but it's too expensive and you can get the same quality with other shampoos.

We have Pantene but i've always thought human shampoo is just too harsh for my dogs, especially my German Shep, in fact i only use puppy shampoo on her diliuted. I bathe my dogs about once a week in the grooming shop so I want to use the most gentle stuff I can that doesnt strip frontline or dry their skin out.

Pantene dries my hair out so im not sure what it would do to my dogs. I used bed head on my own hair and i was thrilled when they started making a pet line of shampoos. I tried them right away and i LOVE them. The only thing I don't like is that the smell wears off, but the dog still looks good so i can't complain too much.

Oh ok, pantene does work nicely on dogs though. Many poodle people use it in Oz. After shows just put in the conditioner. Maybe if you have one in pet clip you want to try on it first.

Oh and if you can get your hands on pure emu oil that will do wonders for growing coat quickly.

I've never heard it but I might try it on Vega. Is Pantene safe for all dogs or is it just the poodle coat that makes it work so well?

My German Shep is allergic to, well probably most things including herself (lol) the only food I have even found that I can feed her is taste of the wild and I have to be very carefull on what treats she eats, etc... i give all the dogs raw fish once a week because i've heard those oils are really good for the skin and coat, plus they really enjoy it. They always get figedy on Saturdays around meal time, i think they've just learned to expect it.

I know its good on many long coats, but shephards have harsh coat so not sure about what it would do. Especially if he has allergies.

I usually give sardines a few nights a week. The emu oil is actually better than the fish oils. I buy it in tablet form, you can get in bottle and just put some on food.

You only need a teaspoon on their food daily. Or get the tablets and put it down twice daily.

Wow its cheap in America. Wish we could get it at that price.

Yes pantene works on my hair so I figured it would do good on a poodles coat lol. Many Black hair care products will most likely do good on a poodles coat ( you need to read ingredients first )

I see people also using Motions hairspray for the poodles topknot.

Never heard of motions hair spray. We mostly use RPR, its fantastic to spray their topknots and dont leave residue

Thats interesting Sivaro I always learn something new from your posts !
I am still trying to find those laserlit oils but I can't find them in USA. what are the ingredients on both bottle? or the main ingredients ( first 5)

I found this Aidan I buy from Iherb all the time http://www.iherb.com/Emu-Gold-Emu-Oil-Extra-Strength-Ultra-Active-750-mg-90-Soft-Gel-Caps/12719?at=0

they have it aa capsule form but it is probably cheaper to get a bottle.
