Does your dog get bed head? Is his fur thinning? Is it dull, or do his curls flop in the heat? How black is his black fur? How white is her white fur?

If your dog suffers from any of these horrendous blows to his or her ego, the pet market has the answers.

We're reaching a point where it's not enough just to bathe and groom our dogs; their hair, like our own, must have solutions to bad hair days. So, here are some favorites for items you may not even have dreamed of yet.

 

1. Pet Head High Maintenance Leave-In Conditioner

Of course, the first thing besides a great shampoo, is a great conditioner, and Pet Head High Maintenance Leave-In Conditioner is just that.  From Yorkie to Poodle to Jack Russell to Dashund owners, this Pet Head conditioner is a winner, helping to detangle fur as well as making fur feel and look thicker and healthier.  If you love Bed Head products for your own hair, you'll love Pet Head for your pets. The company makes several popular products for pet fur (see image below).

Chris Christensen is an Australian company that makes dog grooming products mostly for breeders and groomers, but many of its products are widely available to the consumer, like the Ice On Ice Detangler. So for those of you who have show dogs or just really want to doll-up your pups, you will enjoy experimenting with some of the products I list below that you won't find in your local pet store!

The Ice On Ice is also a finishing spray that leaves your dog's fur both easy to brush out and nice and shiny.  The company does not publish the level of sunscreen contained in the product, but for the most part, pet parents don't make an issue of that, because they are so pleased with its performance as a detangler. Ice On Ice also claims to strengthen your dog's fur to prevent breakage!

Whether your dog is a Maltese, Westie, or Poodle, the Wahl Whitening Shampoo will brighten her fur. Though the shampoo does enhance all color, it works best on dogs with light fur, not necessarily white.  It also leaves your pup with a nice, shiny coat.  Wahl products are staples of many dog groomers, but many of its products are available to consumers through Amazon.com.

 

8. Perfect Coat Black Pearl Dog Shampoo

Have you ever seen a black lab or a Scottish terrier who shined? The black pug on the Black Pearl Shampoo shines, as do other black dogs whose family bathes him in Black Pearl, because after its use, his coat reflects light. That's how you want a black dog! The shampoo is black, so unless you want a dark rinse on a light colored dog, I would only use this on dark colored dogs. - maybe dark brown, if you want his coat to look darker. Pet parents are very happy with the performance of Black Pearl.

Below the listing for Perfect Coat Black Pearl Dog Shampoo, you can find other hair products for dogs made by Perfect Coat.

 

Oh, and here's Kelly (see top photo) after she's had a haircut and a rich Chris Christensen - Spectrum 10 Hypro Pac treatment!
