New Products: COMING SOON !!
COAT CONDITIONER: Customers, especially grooming professionals, have asked us for a conditioning product to accompany our shampoo. We expect this product to be a big hit for dogs with long hair or fur prone to matting. We are pleased to announce that this product will be available by mid-July and will be one of our featured products greenbulldog.com/Pages/Products/detail.aspxat the Houston Reliant Dog Show on July 20-24. In the near future, we will have more information on this page about the formulation, what it does, and how to use it.
COAT CLIPPER OIL: Also, we have a truly unique new lubricating oil for pet hair clippers. It is formulated especially for use with hair clippers and blades. This oil contains no petroleum. It is produced entirely from plant biomass and is biodegradable and renewable. It's flow and lubricating properties are as good or better than leading petroleum based clipper lubricants. And...it smells good!. (Back to top)

- In our opinion, the frequency with which a dog is groomed depends on the owner's experience with the habits and activities of each dog and the animal's general health. However...
- Generally, shorted haired dogs should be bathed with a good quality dog shampoo and conditioner at least monthly.
- Generally, long haired dogs should be brushed daily and bathed with a good quality dog shampoo once every week or two. A high quality conditioner should be used on long haired dogs to protect their coat and make it easier to brush and de-tangle.
- Regular use of a dog shampoo that gently but effectively repels fleas and ticks should help minimize these pests on the dog and on the owner!
- Inspect the dog's skin regularly for areas that may require a skin treatment to soothe or heal. Bad or painful skin irritations warrant a visit to the vet. Dogs that live outside and that favor adventures in the great outdoors should be inspected more often.
- Long haired dogs need to be checked regularly for matted fur and the fur needs a regular clipping. This is breed dependent and dependent on the style of the coat, of course, but generally good grooming habits for a long haired breed will include clipping once every few weeks just to maintain a healthy, un-matted coat that doesn't interfere with the dog's routine activities.
