Question grooming sprays/conditioners

Do any of you use grooming sprays when you brush longer haired dogs? I have heard brushing dry with no grooming spray can damage the coat. I have orderd a bottle of Chris Christensen's Ice on Ice spray for Waynes Australian Shepherd, Aussie. Is this one as good as it sounds? what others would you groomers suggest I try?

ice on ice is great!!!! My shelties breeder introduced me to it. Another product I have used is infusium leave in conditioner for people. I dilute 50/50 with water and spray it on before brushing. Its not as good as ice on ice which has built in sunscreen, but its cheaper and I use it for my non show dogs

Great! I can't wait to try it on our Aussie. I have used Infusium on my horses manes and tails before a show, but I have never thaught about it for a dog. For now, I am going to stick with trying the Ice on Ice. I hear really good things about it.

Will using leave in conditioner help with Tiggers wild hairs? His shoulders and sides are laying down nicely, he looks sleek and shiney, but his rump area is looks like a bad hair day all the time...he looks really silly...:P

Could it be fleas? Alot of times fleas will congregate at the base of the tail. If not, try a moisturising conditioner maybe. I am sure someone else wil have some better suggestions for you.

What you need is a butt towel what I do with my show dogs is spray the conditioner and put a folded towel on the butt area and allow it to dry. unfortunatly it is not a permanent fix, and a lot of bc's have wavy curly hair on their butts.

Hmmm. Cerbie has some crazy hair near his tail too. I swear it wasn't there until I gave him his first bath. Maybe I'll try the towel thing if I can get him to sit still.

Heheh your idea sounds good, and yes, he has a wavy butt area, I just DONT like the look of it... He has a perfecly smooth body then WHAM! His behind is all poofy and curly...lol it just looks funny. I have even thought of putting human hair gel in it...Call me vain but I want my pooches to look their best!

Another product you could try is the Plush Puppy Seabreeze Oil. Either dilute and use as a final rinse or spray directly into damp or dry coat for easy combing. Nice product if you can get your hands on it. I know its australian, but is sold worldwide.

I haven't used plush puppy products, but I have heard other sheltie people say it is a good product. Something else for me to try
