    I have been using the Adams shampoo for several years and I think it is great, just wish it has a better smell to it.

    We don't use a lot of shampoo. Fortunately for us, since he hates baths, my dog doesnt get too dirty. We typically give him 1 or 2 baths a year so we just get some cheap shampoo at the pet store. In between that we use grooming wipes and that seems to work good enough.

    Just one or two baths a year? My Candy can't do with less than once a week. Longer than that she will be scratching all the time. Maybe it's because Bangkeaws are born to live with water.

    Yeah he has a pretty low-maintenance coat which is good since he hates the bath so much. He's a mixed breed, and one of his breeds is a water loving animal since he has webbed feet but he hates the water.

    Webbed feet? Yes, that's the mark of a water dog like the Labrador Retriever. Strangely, Bangkeaws don't have webbed feet. I know because I have looked.

    Well, yes. I use mild dog soap because there’s a dog soap that dries their skin and I think made them feel so itchy after bathing. I also use a dog powder when they soak up but it’s only when they got ticks or fleas from the neighboring dogs. Because I saw them licking their furs and I thought the chemicals may be bad for their health. That’s why I also make it a point that I rinse them thoroughly because I don’t want them licking soap remainders.

    Then I would suggest getting a dog shampoo which comes with a moisturizer. That would help to keep the fur silky and skin soft at the same time.

    I have a white dog so we need a whitening shampoo too keep her from looking too yellow. There's a pretty decent, cheap one at Walmart that's blue. I can't remember the name right now, but it seems to do the trick whenever we bathe my dog. It doesn't have too much fragrance too it either, which seems to benefit everyone.

    Blue? That makes me think of the indigo dye which my mother used to soak my white clothes. I doubt if blue makes white actually whiter. I would say it's more of an optical illusion.

    I don't think it's an "optical illusion". On the color wheel, blues and purples cancel out yellows and oranges. It's why when females dye their hair to blonde many dyes contain blue or purple components to keep it from becoming brassy. In essence all colors are "optical illusions" as our perception is controlled by our eyes.

    I also use that kind of shampoo for my dog. I don't have any plans to replace it because he is already familiar with the smell of it and I am worried that he might not like it if I am going to look for a new replacement.

    Maybe you should be a bit adventurous. Just in case, they run out of stock of your favorite dog shampoo.

    I think you have a point on that. I'll just find something that smells similar to the dog shampoo I am using right now.

    You can try it this way. Mix a bit of the new shampoo with the old one. Then your dog may not notice so much difference in the smell.
