 Post subject: I can't believe I'm going to say this....
PostPosted: Fri May 18, 2012 7:31 pm 
I think I might have found a shampoo and conditioner that I like better than Coat Handler.

Let me just say I judge shampoos and conditioners by performance only. I find conditioners that have to be rinsed out a waste of time and water. Leave in's are a must for me and there aren't that many out there. I want the shampoo to clean well, and rinse easily. Don't really care about smell...

...until now that is. On a groomer board I belong to there was a company called Quadruped giving out free samples (sorry to groomers only) and everyone was raving about this stuff. I thought, well why not it's free, so I sent for my samples. At first I thought the smell was overwhelmingly flowery. I'm not a flowery smell person, I like musks, cinnamon, vanilla. Once diluted and on the dog it's like a drug to me. I CANNOT get enough of the smell. I hauled home a dryer just so I could bathe my dogs since I didn't have time at work after I got it Friday or on Saturday. A week later they still smell fabulous. Anytime they shake or scratch I smell it.

It gets my dogs SO white too, I mean bright white and it isn't even a whitening shampoo. I did Toph today who is in full coat and I was able to brush out her armpits mats with a PIN brush, they just fell out.

Now long term, I don't know. It may end up building up, breaking hair, who knows, but for now, I've got a new shampoo. Oh and did I mention I LOVE the smell?

ETA this also kills fleas naturally with the Yucca AND repels them.

Keep the updates coming! I'm addicted to leave-in conditioner, since you got me started on Coat Handler, but I don't really like the smell, or rather, "no-smell" of Coat Handler. How does the cost compare?

They have several types. Which is the one you used and are so taken with?

I believe Julie used the All in One Shampoo and All in One Conditioner.

I was in need of some shampoo, so I just placed an order for the one gallon of each of those. Shipping was $20 by UPS, but we are rural out here!
I'm anxious to try this new shampoo and conditioner! And get the smell factor going!

i am SOOOO excited to read this! While the cats and other dog in the household stay flea-free, Indie and Bennett both seem to have a "ride free today only!" sign on them for fleas to hop aboard - we haven't tried Sylvia's natural method yet (that was next) but the chemical route wasn't working, and I'm not too thrilled about those chemicals, anyway. I just forwarded Julie's post to my groomer, so she can hopefully get a free sample, if they are still being offered. SOOOO excited!!!!

THANK YOU, JULIE!

Oh cool! I guess I mis-read the "for groomers only" part to mean ordering - not just the free sample. I placed an order too.

I'm going to order a couple of 16 oz extras of the product they sent me. They are half the price when you order wholesale (12.10 for both shampoo and conditioner in the 16oz size). If anyone is interested let me know. I get a deal on shipping if I order over 100 dollars, so I'll only charge you what it costs me to send it to you.

Julie - considering the number of orders they just received because of you, they should pay YOU to use the stuff! :sml

Hi Julie,
Thanks for sharing this new product with us!
Is this sold as a concentrate? With only one dog a gallon might last way too long!
Sent you a pm! :joy

Hey guys:

I just got this email from Quadruped:

Hey Christine, glad to see you're interested in our products! I just need to verify that you're a professional grooming establishment, as I'm not seeing you in our system as a current customer nor as someone that had contacted us about the product in the past. How did you hear about us? Thanks!

-Shaun
Quadruped Pet Care

Do you think this means we can't order unless we're professional groomers?(In which case, I want some of what you bought, Julie.)

Was this on their 'retail' side or their wholesale side?

I'm assuming wholesale, because I got the third degree when I asked for my free samples too.

I'll make another order as the first ones I bought were gone in minutes. I hope you all love it as much as I do. It's raining out today and all I smell is this shampoo, not wet dog, and most of my dogs had a bath over a week ago now.

Julie, I'd like to place an order too . . . and instead of you shipping it to me, maybe you can give it to Steph to bring to me in St. Louis?

Yay! My groomer wrote in for her grooming samples. I'm really really really crossing paws that it helps repel the fleas. Bennett is just too nice for his own good ... "come'on over bugs! hitch a ride, I'm going that way!" :bang

Add me to the list of those who got an e-mail response to my order.

Please, Julie, if not too late, can you order me a shampoo and conditioner, thanks!
