Are you doing field training? The reason I ask is that it is really hard to keep a nice coat when field training. We have held off doing heavy field work work with dogs that we are actively showing as the water and the briers they encounter brake that coat. my advice would be to do one or the other.
to get your dogs coat in good condition I use cholesterol I slather it into there coat leave it in for a day or to (ya they look horrible) shampoo out and blow dray do the once every other week and pretty soon you will have a nice show coat.
Anyway it works for Miss Mia
Yes i do field work with her. I figured it was the field work.
Where can one buy cholestrol ? I remember from years ago I had been told about it and had completely forgotten. Thank you for the great recommendation. Just not sure where one purchases that.
For the ocean, we use Wupi Magic
For ponds/lakes, Isle of Dogs heavy use and also weekly 30 minute soak in Pro Gro conditioner
Daily spray with Crowne Royal Magic Touch # 2
This is the only way they can do all the outdoor stuff, and maintain show coat

No-cholesterol doesn't change the texture of the coat. It is just oil, basically.
I would also caution about using Crown Royale products on a daily basis or even every other day. They do have silicone in them and will break down the coat over time. It is one thing to use them at shows, but I wouldn't recommend them for conditioning.
Coat care requires a lot of work. Dogs need to be bathed on a weekly basis and blown dry. If you leave the dog to air dry, the under coat will matt and clump and start to fall out. When drying the dog, I tell people to dry until they "feel dry" and then do it another 10-15 minutes so they are REALLY dry.
Dirty coat breaks and it does not grow so it is important that the hair is kept clean.
I recommend ProGro as a conditioner. It is light weight and doesn't change the coat, but does a wonderful job at keeping it in good condition and helping to bring back coat that needs work.

Can you please tell me where I can buy cholesterol conditioner for dog? Really interested to try.
I know this sound silly, but I was thinking for a while, the only pet safe cholesterol treatment i think may work is Mayonnaise.....
