Please don't make me take a bath.
So, now here we are trying to navigate the world of grooming a dog who barely lets me give her a bath. One of the things that I always loved about taking Astrea to see Maureen is, when she would come back her hair would be soft like when she was a puppy. I've never been able to replicate that feeling when I give Astrea a bath at home...until now! I'll be honest, I never would have thought that dogs need conditioner. I know how important it is to caring for my own hair, but never thought that my dog may need some of the same level of care.
This past weekend we tried Viva la Dog Spa Rescue Me! Deep Conditioner and I am in LOVE. Not only does it smell fantastic, once Astrea's coat dried it was so incredibly soft. I couldn't stop petting her and telling her how soft her fur was! A few years back Astrea had a little skin infection on her back end and her hair never grew back the same. It's always been coarse and tough. I was thrilled that even that tough, coarse spot felt fantastic! I can only imagine how it will feel after we use it a few more times. I was a little scared to even attempt to groom Astrea, but if this conditioner is a preview of what it will be like, I think we'll be ok! If you want to try Rescue Me! Deep Conditioner - check out the Viva la Dog Spa website. I also loved that I didn't feel like I needed to use a ton of the product on her. I started with just a small dollop in my hand and worked that through, and it was definitely enough to really get all over. Makes me happy to know that the bottle we have will last us through several baths!
Look how pretty and clean I am!
UPDATE: It's been just over a week since I used the Rescue Me! on Astrea and she STILL FEELS SO SOFT! I just cannot get over how fantastic her coat feels! I'm sure Astrea isn't excited for her next bath, but I can't wait! I have a feeling things are just going to get better and better from here!!
