Read the directions first! December 4, 2015 13:40
A great shampoo provided you read the directions.
I own Max, an 8 month old pit puppy. He's dirty. All the time. If you don't watch him, he's liable to roll around in garbage, excrement, or dirt.
For awhile I was using Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap which is what I use on myself. I figured it was good, organic, all that jazz.
Max has sensitive skin and broke out into hives one day, so I decided to get him a sensitive skin shampoo. He also took the opportunity to roll around to diarrhea so this was a perfect opportunity to bathe him. I stuck him in the bathrub, got him nice and wet, shampooed the crap out of him, and rinsed him off. Afterwards, he still stunk. I thought I wasted my money and went back to the Dr. Bronners to clean him off.
A few weeks later, diarrhea dog crapped in front of my house again and Max wasted no time rolling around in it. I wiped him off as best as I could and my girlfriend told me to wash the dog like an adult. She kept going on about how I wasted my money with the fancy dog shampoo and blah blah blah. I wanted to defend my purchase other than to say it was good for his skin.
I have no idea what neem is. I know what oatmeal is. Its for breakfast. These were pretty weak arguments.
Then I read the directions. Apply the shampoo do your dog before they're soaked down and work it into a lather. Then rinse them off.
Your dog will smell clean and their fur magically becomes soft. Your girlfriend will stop being critical. You'll magically become happier.
Can't go wrong! Just read the directions.
