As an owner of dogs with double coats, I have to say that we spend quite a bit on grooming products for dogs. For those who don’t know about double-coated dogs, like Alaskan Malamutes, twice a year they completely shed their undercoat. This fun experience is known as ‘blowing coat’. Some of you may have even seen Reya’s post on Instagram the last time I remembered to take a picture with our entire yard looking like it snowed with all the fur coming off in handfuls. While this obviously means lots of brushing, bath time with products specially formulated for dogs is also super important, especially since blowing coat usually leads to dry skin. Luckily, we recently found an awesome line of products specializing in skin care for dogs and cats – Bayer ExpertCare™ at PetSmart®.

As some of you may remember, we have slowly been becoming a fan of  Bayer ExpertCare products, especially after trying the Bayer ExpertCare Ear Care Rinse. All of their products are not only designed to be easy to use, but specially formulated for cats and dogs. This means that we have high quality products, from a brand we trust for humans, that will help support Reya and Ivi’s skin, ears, and even digestive system. They are, by far, one of the best health and wellness pet brands we have tried, and we love that they have a full line of quality care grooming products for our dogs.

To our delight, the Bayer ExpertCare Moisturizing Dog Shampoo and Bayer ExpertCare Moisturizing Dog Conditioner are just as we expected. Both of the shampoo and conditioner are formulated to be hypoallergenic for dogs. As well, their soap-free shampoo is formulated routine cleansing and grooming, while providing extra moisturizers and essential fatty acids that clean, replenish moisture, and protect our dogs sensitive skin. From there, the conditioner is made with additional moisturizers to soften dogs’ skin and leave their coat lustrous, manageable, and super soft. Best of all, it helps control flaking and scaling, something that is very common in double coated dogs while they are blowing coat!

Before I get more into the Bayer ExpertCare Moisturizing Shampoo and Bayer ExpertCare Moisturizing Conditioner, I want to remind everyone that Reya is not a fan of bath time. If she thinks there is even a chance she is getting a bath, she will high-tail it. To make bath time easier, we give her baths in our spare bathroom with a massage shower head, to help make the experience more pleasurable. Not only does this make Reya happier, it makes bath time less miserable for everyone, especially when Reya is dealing with dry skin and feeling miserable from blowing coat.

We knew it was a good sign though when Reya smelled this new shampoo and conditioner and loved the smell. Honestly, she was intrigued with the coconut smell and wanted to eat it! Its rare that we find a product that isn’t overpowering when it comes to scents, giving Bayer ExpertCare Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner  a good start. From there, I was surprised at just how little it took to wash our dog. Normally, it takes anywhere from 1/3 to half a bottle of a product to clean Reya. With this line of grooming products, we barely used a 1/4 of the bottle of both the shampoo and conditioner, and Reya was fairly patient through the entire experience. In the end, we had a super soft dog that smelled absolutely amazing!

So, what did we think? Overall, I have to say that Bayer ExpertCare Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner was a major win in our household. Not only was Reya happy once the whole bath experience was over, but she seemed more confident and comfortable, making me a very happy dog mom! Honestly, I can’t wait to try more of Bayer ExpertCare for dogs products at my local PetSmart!

    I have two cats that struggle with itchy skin and if Bayer made this shampoo and conditioner for cats, I would certainly give it a try! This time of the year, it seems like my cats have super sensitive skin. I would love to give this stuff a try…if only it were cat friendly!

    Looks like some happy pups here. Still have to check out the ear care rinse. My pup does not shed that much, but still gets bath time, and the floppy ears have to be well cleaned.

    I have never used this product before but anything that will give some relief to the scratching and itching is worth a try.

  17. abedabun dawn December 11, 2015 at 7:35 am - Reply

    We should try this. Since the season has changed, our dogs scratch like crazy! We give them the flea pill, so we know they dont have fleas. I think it is from their summer coat falling out and their winter coat replacing it.

    This would be great for my daschund. He has terribly dry skin, especially on his belly. He also has dandruff pretty bad.

I buy the product and when he goes to his monthly groomer appt, , they use the products I buy. I will check these out when I go to get his shampoo at Pet Smart.

    Bath time can be so difficult especially for such thick furred dogs. My dog has a short coat which makes it easier but this sounds like it would still be a helpful product for her.

    I have to try this shampoo and conditioner. We have 5 dogs (one with a double coat) but they all have itchy skin. The other shampoos I used on them only seemed to make it worse.

    My last cat was always itching, so I used my lotion and petroleum jelly on her where she itched. They didn’t make anything like this then. When my current cat starts itching, it’s nice to know I can go to PetSmart, where I buy all of his food anyway, and get something made just for him.

    For a non bath time fan Reya looks content. I didn’t know Bayer had a line for animals. I am glad to hear Reya enjoy her experience, my youngest Lola she is the one that gives us a hard time when it comes to bath time. Always wanting to leave the bath tub. Maybe the scent of coconut will calm her down. I think right now the shampoo we use has oatmeal. I have never used a conditioner of my babies but I see I should. Fawn pugs are also double coated and thanks for letting me know when they shed its call “blowing coat.”

    Thanks so much for the Fantastic Review on Help Relieve Itchy Skin with #BayerExpertCare Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner! I have 2 Shih Tzu’s and they are constantly licking their feet! The Vet said it’s an allergy and we could test them to see what they are allergic to. We can’t afford this test for one let alone 2! I’m wondering if this shampoo and conditioner would help them out with that. It’s supposed to relieve itchy skin, so it just may work! With any money we get at Christmas, I’m going to take some and get them some of these products! Thanks so much for sharing your fantastic review, all the great pictures, and your personal and professional opinions on Help Relieve Itchy Skin with #BayerExpertCare Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner with all of us!
