Question What shampoo for red Doberman?

Hey everyone,

We have a red doberpuppy and she is also a show girl. I wanted to know what would be the best shampoo to use on her? I would like something to help with dry skin, which we all know that Dobes have, add more shine and bring out her beautiful red color.

Thank you for any help that you can offer.

Angela

I've never used a special shampoo for my reds. Some people feed kelp as a supplement, thinking it darkens reds up nicely. I've never seen where it really made any difference from a color standpoint.

Lately I've been using Micro Tek shampoo (it's actually a horse product) and I like it about as much as any shampoo I've ever used on a dog.

I have also a red girl and don't use any shampoo.
She has a dark red from birth on. I think the color of the coat is a genetic thing. I feed her raw and she gets daily salmon oil - that's it.

Definitely Isle of Dog.

I use the Black Dog Shampoo and it is wonderful! I use it on both my boys and it really darkened them up!

True Colors shampoo is absolutely fantastic stuff, no unnecessary fragrance and as natural as possible. Makes my red girl's coat really gleam a rich chocolate brown, she gets lots of compliments on her appearance in public. I swear she almost looks like a different dog after a wash. No skin issues at all; I'm feeding The Honest Kitchen with raw meat and organs added, Vit E, fish oil and Show Stoppper.

Her half brother is a black and tan and they swear by it too, they're the ones who pointed out that they look like a different dogs after a bath - really brings out the highlights in his dark rust markings and his coat takes on an almost supernatural shine. He actually did have a skin issue at one point - never certain if it was an injection site reaction, mites or a reaction to Frontline, but he developed a quarter sized bald spot and chin bumps. The issue resolved quickly after a few weeks of Show Stopper and True Colors and no issues since - just a fabulous coat.

I dont know I used Cowboy Magic the other day... I had to wash Miesha or she wasnt coming in the house, she had found some very interesting smell to roll in. Her coat has been really nice since then... its an equine product though.

Any shampoo good for a black is good for a red! Be sure you are using cool water and not rubbing the soap against the coat. Rinsing with diluted ACV makes a world of difference too. (1/4 cup acv in a gallon of water)

See If you can find a good moisturizing shampoo that contains Rosemary. Rosemary is an awesome conditioner for red hair. Just make sure you dilute any shampoo with water before you apply it to your dogs coat. Way less drying that way. And if you can make a final rinse with a rosemary infused vinegar solution added to the final rinse water! SHINEY!!!! It also will help balance out the ph of the skin.

When Rex was a little puppy his breeder (Tosca) told me to use Pantene and I've been using it ever since with great results. As greenKouki stated not real warm water. I believe that good coats come from the inside out.

Hey DLS, what do you think of using this shampoo with a rosemary tea rinse? I use the conditioner too. When making a tea, should I chop leaves or crush? Stem or not?

Just chop the Rosemary leaves and stems up and then infuse and strain and add the infusion to the shampoo to dilute and also add to the final rinse water. Or if you can buy Rosemary essential oil, just add a couple of drops to the shampoo, conditioner and final rinse water.

Hi Angela,

I was surprised to see that "we all know that Dobes have [dry skin]".

I've never had a Dobe in all of the years Ive owned them that had dry skin and have thought several times that what people start calling "dry skin" in a dog is more often related to incorrect bathing techniques like using water too warm, scrubbing at the skin with rubber curries, using harsh shampoos, inadequet rinsing etc.

Like Murreydobe one of my favorite shampoos is Eqyss MicroTek but I've found the various horse shampoos to all be pretty good. I use Relief Shampoo (which I've only ever seen at vet clinics) and their leave in or rinse out Relief conditioner on my fawn. I tried the Nova Pearls but it stripped too much oil from his coat--worked fine on the black dogs though.

Since your red bitch is a puppy you'll find that she'll go through a couple of puppy sheds before she has an adult coat. Other people have already said that coat color in reds (and blues and fawns) is largely hereditary--I haven't seen anything that really produces much of a change in coat color except for the color enhancing shampoos. Some reds fade more if they have a lot of sun exposure than others and puppies tend to fade easily but that's primarily because puppy coat texture is different than adult coats.

Shine comes from the inside--a healthy dog with a clean coat will be glossy--even my fawn shines when newly bathed.

Sort of expecting some hard to find exotic shampoo rather than Pantene! And I have to say it's worked great on both Rex and Tara.

Ya, so was Jessie's handler. Taken aback, I mean. They remarked that her coat always looked great.

I believe that I've been Judy Doniere (Toledobes) post on other groups that she used Pantene on the dogs, too.

I know of a few show breeders that use PANTENE!!!!...I don't, and I am not a show person. I, like Murray dobe, use Eqyss Micro-tek....smells great and helps with any skin issues....Carol Ann from Rauschund recommended it to me a few years ago and I have been using it ever since.

I use 4% chlorhexidine medicated shampoo. I've never had any odor problems since using it and it last for several days! No "dog" smell!
