To be honest, I very rarely wash my staff. The strange time I look at her that’s once in a blue moon, because they don’t have to worry about hair, the strange time I shampooed her, I used groats, goat’s milk shampoos. Her coat is fantastic. I’m lucky that we live near the beach and salt water is his bath.

I can’t advise a dog that likes mud, water, snow, rain, light showers, puddles, or anything else remotely based on H2O, but for a hydrophobic Nancy boy who didn’t need much cleaning, I never showered him once. more than 10 years! The vet how very sensitive a staff’s skin is and to avoid shampoo etc. I used to use hypoallergenic wet wipes for any mud, drool and general ick.

Change their diet. Our dog had terrible itchy skin, but once we found out about the chicken allergy we had no problem. Remove grains and test for proteins they may also be sensitive to
Burts Bees Oatmeal. All 3 of mine have dry skin and it works great on them. I also use the moisturizing conditioner.

Maleseb is the only thing that worked for my pooch. We established that she had hay fever so from April to September she was really itchy, 2 antihistamines a day and a shower every 10 days or so. Let the shampoo lather for about 10 minutes then rinse. Worked a treat

Our staff are allergic to all chicken proteins, including eggs. Fairly common. Our vet does not recommend getting rid of all grains. Find one that your dog can tolerate. Eliminating all grains has other long-term negative effects. Most dogs can tolerate a little vitamin E, olive oil, or coconut oil for dry skin, but watch out for loose stools (I give ours less than a teaspoon per day).
We use Burt’s Bees Shampoobut we don’t bathe ours often either, maybe twice a year.

I just use a mild conditioner with lukewarm water, then rub it in with baby oil with aloe. While still in the shower, Will lost a bit afterwards. Common. But no problem afterwards. Yeah, and I don’t wash it much either. I also add fish oil to his food in the morning.
