Question on shampoo for Harley
OK, I can't seem to find the right combination of answers for the questions I have.
1. Do all puppies have the same kind of coat? Harley seems to have a cottony coat.
2. Also, he has a few minute flakes on his back. Is this from him growing or could it be from his shampoo and rinse. I'm using the Buddy Wash and Rinse samples I ordered from Erin and I love it! Since he's a puppy (messy), I'm washing him once a week. He's not scratching like with an allergic reaction. So my question IS what shampoo should I use if he is flaking?
I've made a list of shampoos that I've found interesting to try:
3. Since these don't all have conditioners or rinses, what products do you suggest that wouldn't weight his coat down?
Sorry I've made this so long!

Puppies have a different coat than adult yorkies and they can be a challenge to groom with the puppy mats they get. The flaking may be something as simple as not getting the shampoo completely rinsed out or as complex as a skin allergy. You could try an oatmeal based shampoo, that can help alleviate the dry flaky skin.

Its so funny , I was just going to write a shampoo review! I just tried Spa Scents Revitalizing Shampoo by Trilogy (HealthyPetNet) and OMG! LOVE it!
It smells sooooo good and it left EVERYONES coat (silky, cotton, and combination) so soft and easy to get thru!!! Its been a couple days and they still feel so soft and clean!
I'm switching from Minksheen to this for sure!
here is the info on it TrilogyOnline Product List
It has even made them stop itching!
