As you see by the pictures I've posted, my havachon Max loves the outdoors and the mud.
I brush him with a slicker and metal comb every day to get out as many mats, sand burs and grass pieces as I can. But it seems to be almost a losing battle!
Is there a better shampoo and conditioner to use to remove mats and tangles and also act as a preventative?
Thank you for your help.

Great question, we have always had short hair dogs. Now we have Hot Shot and he is long hair. I brush him every day but his hair is a little course anyway. I hope there are a lot of suggestions!

I've used this Wheatgrass conditioner on Indie with great results. It smells divine too!
I read on some grooming forums that you can put some conditioner in a spray bottle and mix with water to use to spray down the fur before combing out and it helps alot. I haven't tried it yet, but they say it makes it easier to comb out without breaking or pulling the fur.

I have a cairn terrier, and I use Pet Silk (out of Houston, TX) oatmeal shampoo. I do not bother with a conditioner. The shampoo is gentle and smells so good. I can use it as frequently as needed and it does not irritate his skin. Pet Silk also has conditioners and other kinds of shampoo. I get it at a kennel and at Petsmart.

How often are you bathing?
A slicker isn't the best choice for a straight coat. A pin brush would probably work better, for you.
