    I have always used Coat Handler shampoo. Forever and ever (30 plus years) it's what I've used on my show dogs. Why not in the salon? For a short time I used Envirogroom Gentle Clean and it was an OK shampoo too.

    I did try out Quadruped when everyone was raving about it and I did stick with their all in one conditioner because it smells so good. It's quicker drying than the Coat Handler conditioner too.

    Though I still keep Coat Handler conditioner on hand for my clients who can't stand the scent of the Quadruped. It's funny people either loooove it or hate it. I only have two people who don't like it and one that is sensitive to scents.

    I use Isle Of Dog in the shop. And Chubbs bars. The chubbs sugar scrub is great to deep clean and degrease. IOD follows that. Clients LOVE the clean crisp fragrance and comment on it a lot. Love the clean feel to the coat with these products.

    On the Quadruped the thing I hear the most from clients is the scent fades within hours to a nice level. But more than they love how the dog's coat feels. People mention the softness all the time.

    I don't find the Les Poochs always the best shampoo. It is one of those pearl types and can weight down some coats. So it is a good shampoo but hardly effective on every coat type.

    It's a moisturizing shampoo, so depending on your water, it will not leave a stripped clean feel. But it will still give Yorkie fluffy coat.

    Make sure they know you are a groomer because they have reduced prices for groomers vs public. I LOVE their orange colored degreaser shampoo for cats.

    Their other shampoos were ok. I use Tropiclean , EZ Groom, and Natures Specialty as my "go to shampoos".....because they are good and they work well with my water. You will need to experiment with different shampoos so you too can find the best one for your water. I've never heard of a company charging for samples, usually they gladly give them away for your future business.

    Happy bathing Fluffy

    I love Les pooch. Noel is my favorite smell.
    Michael's VIP clarify shampoo and matching conditioner is great. It's light enough to use on Yorkie not heavy

    We use the Quad a lot downplaying the scent but love Coat Handler too. Les Pooch is good but that company has got my ire sometimes in the past. We still use some of the Groomers Edge specialties and love them. But you cannot go wrong with some Showseasons. Those are our main 4 lines.

    I avoid being impressed by the word luxury. I have had enough experience to know it is really relative and an uncertainty. I have come to love Quadruped All in One, Coat Handler, Alpha White and Grimeinator and some Showseasons. and Some CC.

    Same is true with human shampoos. Luxury means more expensive and not necessarily better.

    I do have a couple that don't like Quad but way more that love it. A good rinse, very good rinse, and it leaves a nice scent. People that are sensitive to scents typically are sensitive to all scents. They get hypo. I could name several brands out there that people are sensitive to, in fact dozens. But an extra rinse helps. Won't stop Quad, but we do have the unscented all in one. Perfect. Personally I cannot take that "plum" scent shampoo that is very popular. Odd I know but bothers me. Scents are very individual.
