Wink What shampoos/conditioners? Coat supplements?

Just wondering if there were any US recommendations for Shampoos/Conditioners commonly used before dogs are taken into the ring (LOL). Of course, I ask this question after I've just ordered a whole lot of different shampoos/conditioners to try over the next few months.

Also wondering, any recommended coat supplements? Dinky's coat is coming in nicely now but wondering if there's anything he should be getting to speed the process up a bit?

I would use a whitener on Bryco since he's white. I know biogroom products are popular with the show folks. You might check with Lisa, but he may need chalked as well once you get to the show site.

I personally like nuprosupplement.com along with salmon oil. Gives a mirror sheen to the coat, although a healthy diet produces a great coat all by itself. But it does seem to give that little edge.

Do I need to use a whitner if he is really, really white anyway? Is it gonna make a difference?

Also the chalking bit...what does that do? Make him more white? Is it OK to do or considered cheating? I thought about whitening shampoo but he is sooo white on the white parts that I wasn't sure he needed it.

Oh yeah, you want to use a whitening shampoo. For sure. It will brighten his white. The difference is clear.

The chalking will enhance his whiteness. Not sure if the LC people use it though. I'd think you would mostly be using it on his legs/feet.

Dang, wish you had a good Chi person there with you to show you the ropes! Or a professional handler. Well, you'll get there.

Gah. I'm gonna go stop by the grooming shop in town and see if she can show me how to chalk. She's super nice.

My sister had a white standard poolde (show dog) she like the #1 All Systems Pure White Lightening Shampoo or the Chris Christensen's White on White shampoos for her boy's whitening. They worked well.

Get some Show Stopper supplement, it works wonders, I have heard a lot of chi people use it, it helps the coat grow quickly and nice and thick.
