I know what you mean, Rhoda. I found the nicest smelling shampoo for Shiloh, and every time after I bathe her I just have to bury my face in her fur and take deep breaths! A couple weeks ago I took her to a groomer for the first time, and was so disappointed that the shampoo she used didn't leave Shiloh smelling as nice as what I use! If I take her back there, I'm gonna bring my own shampoo!
Yeah, the groomers shampoo at Petsmart isn't as good smelling as others I've used. I love it when they are clean and soft and smelly good.
Funny story, when I was a kid, we had a poodle, so he had to be groomed often and they used the best smelling shampoo. Fast forward 30 years and my boss here at work sometimes wears a perfume that reminds me so much of that smell. I love it, but I'm totally not going to tell her that she smells like my childhood dog! LOL
Ohhhhhh...I love the smell of a clean pup! I haven't taken Maggie to the groomer yet, as she's still small enough that it's easy to do her in the tub. I've been using Avoderm Natural puppy shampoo, and she smells absolutely WONDERFUL afterwards!
Our two smell bad at the moment but all we do is sponge them down. Susi is an expert at finding yucky things to roll in and Snoopy has a terrile habit of peeing on her, so her perfume is anything but pleasant.
