    Yes I agree. This isn't likely from the groom.

Dog stayed at home.. so now I’m wondering how she even knows for sure it was caused by grooming if she wasn’t even home to see when it started.
    And dog does have another small raw spot on the upper tail. I offered to rebath the dog with hypo allergenic shampoo waiting to hear back from her.
    i contacted natures specialty and they responded that they’ve had no other complaints and the product is their best seller. I do believe them since I’ve heard nothing but good things about their products.

    I haven't heard of a GSD not having hip dysplasia

    Not sure where my mind is necessarily going with this, but does the dog have hip dysplasia issues?

    Agree, most likely not the shampoo. May be the anxiety. Should go to the vet.

    Owner was out of town? I'm thinking a bad case of separation anxiety. Dog pulls out hair. Shepherds do seem to react over the top sometimes.

    Being so localized to one side and the tail would lead me to believe it’s something else entirely. Not you and definitely not the shampoo causing that. Natural Groomer shampoo will irritate the skin if you don’t rinse it super well, but then again you’d see it all over the dog not just one area like for the GSD.

    Could you have possibly overdone it with the furminator???

    Now how to address this with them is the question. I’m fortunate to have a vet I can rely upon for these things. I would have offered to do a hypotonic shampoo bath and super rinse it and get a vet’s opinion.

    Oh heck no. That took some major knawing on the dog’s part. They needed to contact you sooner. Doubtful that’s from the Shampoo. Far too extreme.

    Agree with Cyn. Also wanted to say this is why I stick with one product. People will claim all kinds of things and when I say I've used the same shampoo and conditioner forever they can't really come back on that.
