UNDERSTANDING HAIR
Hair is a fine protein filament which grows from the skin of animals and man. It is a symbol of beauty, excellence, good health and superior care. Long and flowing or thick and full coat in optimum condition is a breathtaking sight in the show ring, as well as a source of pride for the owner, be it a household pet or a Best In Show winner. Better knowledge of the hair we deal with will enrich our understanding of its proper care .
Hair grows at different rates depending on genetic make-up, time of the year, care and overall general health of the animal. The hair shaft, root and skin can be damaged by the indiscriminate or improper use of chemicals. The skin serves as a barrier to water loss by the body. If this protective barrier is damaged it cannot function properly, leading to dryness. You can promote hair growth if you create the proper climate.
Hair textures vary from breed to breed and individual to individual. To the average pet
owner these differences may be so subtle as to be practically non-existent. However to the professional stylist, as well as the seasoned show dog owner, these differences can be all too evident. The multi-dog atmosphere we are in enlightens us to this fact.
The natural texture of the coat is a genetically determined subject. It can, however, be
altered by nutrition, climate, chemicals and care. In other words, a dog of decent genetic background kept parasite free and given a good diet will be able to grow coat. It is up to us to see that he keeps the coat he grows!
Hair is affected by the climate; wind, moisture (or lack of it), heat, cold, sun, dust and
static. Static is one of the most common causes of tangling, matting and breakage. Dirt and dust have an abrasive affect, causing splitting and weakening of the hair shaft. This is why it is important to keep the coat as clean as possible and avoid brushing or combing a dirty coat. Most oils used to hold coats between show days simply coat the hair and act as a magnet to dirt and dust. This causes matting, thus necessitating more frequent grooming sessions.
Harsh silicones can create static, attract dust and dirt and encourage tangling. Silicones are also absorbed by the hair shaft. Blown up and coated artificially, the hair becomes brittle and eventually breaks. Alcohol is another chemical used in many hair care products which is drying to the skin and hair.
#1 ALL SYSTEMS products contain all natural healthy ingredients and promote hair growth by creating a healthy climate for coat Top show dogs must be impeccably groomed and in spectacular condition to continue with their winning ways. Your pet dogs deserve to benefit from your knowledge of show dog conditioning. A happy client is a repeat client, and proper conditioning can make the difference.

SHAMPOOING & BATHING
Choosing the right shampoo and giving a proper bath is the most important step in the conditioning process.
First determine the type of hair you are dealing with and what it's particular needs are.

Basic Guidelines:
All coats can be shampooed with #1 ALL SYSTEMS Super Cleaning & Conditioning Shampoo as this is the gentlest of all shampoos and completely residue free, it is safe enough to be used everyday, safe for puppies, kittens, cats, lactating bitches, allergic dogs, guinea pigs, birds etc., oh and yes it is great on your own hair as well,, the pH is neutral so it rinses completely clean. It removes only the excess oil and dirt, never the natural oil. It is not a high 'sudser' and it is tearless.
More suds does not mean more clean it only means more detergent or soap.
This is also a good one to use if you wish to create a Medicated bath this is best accomplished by adding a tablespoon or 2 of the E-1 Tea Tree Oil to a quart of mixed, already diluted shampoo, tumble the bottle to mix. Apply liberally and work down to skin,, leave on for several minutes and rinse thoroughly.

Fragile Coats - either naturally, as an example; Maltese, Yorkshire Terrier, or due to poor condition - #1 ALL SYSTEMS Super Cleaning & Conditioning Shampoo

Rough! Hard Coats - ALL OVER SHAMPOOING - Crisp Coat Botanical Texturizing & De-Toxifying Shampoo, volume maximizer & texture builder & restorer, removes hard water minerals and chlorine. Gentle enough also to be used on more delicate drop coats especially recommended for show day bath.

To Whiten (remove stains) & Brighten - all colors remove rust staining on blacks- A-2 Professional Formula Whitening/Brightening Shampoo.

CONDITIONING THE SHOW COAT
Maintenance and conditioning of the coated show dog should not have to be a tedious or laborious assignment. Proper use of the fine products available to us today, coupled with a knowledge of technique, can make this task quick and easy with rewarding results.
"Holding Coats", "in oil" or "put down in oil" all refer to the same thing; the act of applying a product that will reduce tangling and matting of the hair, therefore virtually eliminating between bath brushing. The reduced stress to the coat assures us that maximum volume and length will be achieved.
Many of the coat-holding products found on the market today are designed to coat the hair shaft with oil to keep it from matting and tangling. They do not condition. So, consequently, the minute the oil is removed (usually with a harsh, detergent -type shampoo) the hair is very dry and weakened, having lost its elasticity, making it vulnerable to breakage. The healthy glow is lost and it becomes more susceptible to matting... the very thing you have been trying to avoid from the start. A lot of hair without good condition is simply a lot of poorly conditioned hair.
Lanolin is natures best moisturizer. As it is absorbed into the skin and coat, it restores and maintains the natural moisture balance necessary for maximum hair growth and optimum elasticity. Lanolin also acts as a natural repellant to fleas, virtually eliminating the need for sprays and dips.
Lanolin Plus (B2) can be a little tricky to work with, but once you've mastered the techniques you will be amazed and delighted at the phenomenal condition and ease of maintenance that will be achieved in your show clients' coats. Complete knowledge of the show coat will only enhance your capabilities with your pet clients.
Protein Conditioner (B1) is one of the keys to successful oil technique when mixed in the proper proportions with the Lanolin Plus (B2). Besides the wonderful conditioning benefits of the protein, it is an excellent de -tangler and anti-stat. Consult Mixing Chart #1 for measurements.
Mix fresh solution of B1 and B2 for each application. We recommend the use of a 32oz
applicator-type bottle, to ease mixing and distribution. Measure ingredients into the bottle and fill half way with hot water. SHAKE THOROUGHLY! Finish filling the bottle with warm water and shake again. This insures proper blending of the ingredients. Apply the solution to a freshly bathed, damp dog. Apply as evenly as possible, lifting the coat to reach all layers. Be sure to cover all hard-to reach areas, such as tummies, armpits, groin, behind ears, and under necks and chins. Sometimes it is helpful to plug the drain of the tub to retain any product that pours off the dog and re-apply with a cup or large turkey baster .
Now for the critical step toward success, RINSE THOROUGHLY! This will insure even distribution of the product. The hair shaft will grab what it needs and the excess will be rinsed away. By coating each hair shaft with the lanolin you are assuring that the coat is properly "put down" and between bath brushing should be eliminated.
For the lighter-weight coat, #1 ALL SYSTEMS has the B3 Humectant Oil. This is a goof-proof no-rinse oil that is mixed and applied in one step, with no rinsing needed. Just apply to a freshly bathed, damp dog. Use the application techniques described above to assure even distribution.
After applying whichever conditioning and coat holding product you've selected for that
particular dog, you should blow dry the coat carefully with a medium heat dryer. Using a pin brush, brush gently with the lay of the hair, taking care to minimize stress on the hair shaft.
This is best accomplished with #1 All SYSTEMS A-6 Crisp Coat Botanical Texturizing & De-Toxifying Shampoo or A-1 Super Cleaning & Conditioning Shampoo. These Products will effectively remove all traces of oil without stripping the coat, burning the skin or altering color. Coats that are to be maintained regularly "IN OIL" should be treated with the A-5 Product Stabilizer and Coat Re-Texturizer at least one to 2 times per month (each time on on the big &/or double or soft and full coated animals) to insure complete removal of any excess conditioning residue. This will insure restoration of the natural proper coat texture i.e. put the 'snap' back into the coat.

DEFINING CONDITIONING GROUPS
Our handling of the show dogs special maintenance needs necessitate the division of these clients into their own individual conditioning groups. We must first take into consideration the quality and physical state of the coat and the show schedule to be followed. By locating the conditioning group best suiting that clients needs we make it easier for ourselves to formulate the conditioning treatment most beneficial for that specific dog.

SUPER CONDITION - If:
A) - The coat is very dense or very long.
B) - The coat is in poor condition - having been damaged by repeated de-matting, prior over-use of caustic products, or simple neglect & in need of intensive
care.
OR
C) - The time between baths is more than ten days.

MODERATE CONDITION - If:
A) - The coat is of medium density (double coated breeds).
B) - The coat is in good condition.
OR
C) - The time between baths is approximately seven days.

LIGHT CONDITION - If:
A) - The coat is fine or single-coated.
B) - The coat is in good condition.
OR
C) - The time between baths is going to be less than seven days.
By using the conditioning system best suited for that individual dog we effectively cut down on brushing, which breaks the coat. Our job is to preserve coat, not punish it.

PRE -BATH COAT PREPARATION
Pre-bath coat preparation shouldn't have to take an enormous amount of time. The proper grooming aids can assure that we spend no more time than is absolutely necessary. These preparation skills will vary with coat type and condition. Consult Chart #3 for brush-out products and techniques.

Coat Types:

Short - (Doberman, Beagle, Whippet etc.) usually no preparation necessary, though you may want to take the D4 Wood Pin Brush and massage the skin & coat to encourage the exfoliation of any excess dander and dead hair.

Medium - (German Shepherd, Corgi, etc.) Same preparation as above, coupled with the use of the Dl Slicker Brush to remove dead undercoat.

Long & flowing - (Lhasa, Yorkie, Afghans etc.) D3 or D4 Pin Brushes will minimize coat breakage on dogs in good condition. Matted areas on show dogs should be treated with care, as to preserve as much coat as possible, while doing the least amount of damage.
Matted pet coats should be treated with equal care, but the use of the Dl Slicker Brush would not be out of line to expedite dematting. Spray the matted areas with C2 Coat Enhancer and let sit for a few minutes. The Coat Enhancer is an excellent dematting agent, helping brushes and combs glide through hair with minimal breakage or discomfort to the dog. Severely matted pet coats may need the mats to be split before the application of a dematting agent. NEVER BRUSH A DRY COAT!

Long & Dense - (Old English Sheepdogs, Bouviers, Poodles, etc ) Use the D2 Pin Brush & C2 Coat Enhancer to start with. Some breeds are required to carry a good amount of
undercoat, so be careful as not to remove too much on the show dogs. Pet owners usually want this excess undercoat removed, so you may use the Dl Slicker to effectively brush and demat.

CHART #1- HOLDING COATS
Long and/or double-coated breeds (Lhasa Apsos, Poodles, Afghans, etc )
Conditioning Group * B1 Protein Conditioner + B2 Lanolin Plus
Super Condition * 2 Tbsp. + 3 - 6+ Tbsp
Moderate Condition * 2 Tbsp. + 2 -3 Tbsp
Light Condition * 2 Tbsp. + i Tbsp.
* Measure the desired amount of conditioner ingredients into a 1 Quart (32 oz) bottle. Fill halfway with warm water. Shake vigorously to mix thoroughly. Add water to fill container and shake again. This insures thorough emulsification of the ingredients. Lanolin is lighter than water and has a tendency to separate. This is normal.
* Slowly pour solution onto a freshly bathed, moist coat. Pay extra attention to fragile areas (topknots, ears) and easy mat areas (legs, armpits, behind ears, privates, etc.).
* RINSE THOROUGHLY! This is very important, as this will insure even distribution of the product throughout the layers of coat to the skin. Lanolin is not water soluble so this action will not rinse the product out!
* Squeeze out excess and blow dry.

CHART #2- HOLDING COATS
Lighter, single-coated breeds (Maltese, Yorkies, etc)
Conditioning Group * B3 - Humectant Oil
Super Condition * 3 - 5+ Tbsp.
Moderate Condition * 2 - 3 Tbsp.
Light Condition * 1 Tbsp.
* Measure the desired amount of Humectant Oil into a one quart bottle of warm water.
Shake to mix well.
* Slowly pour solution onto a freshly bathed, moist coat.
Pay extra attention to fragile areas (topknots, ears) and easy mat areas (armpits, behind ears, privates). DO NOT RINSE! This oil is water soluble and rinsing is not required .
* Squeeze out excess and blow dry.

CHART #3- DAY OF SHOW CONDITIONING
Utilize the conditioner that will best suit the needs of that particular coat type.
B1 Protein Conditioner - Best used on hard or double-coated breeds where substance and body are needed (Malamutes, Huskies, coarser coated Poodles, Newfoundlands, Papillions, Collies, Goldens and dogs with coats of like type and construction. Rinse according to how much body the coat needs (less rinsing, more body).
Conditioning Group * B1 Protein Conditioner
Super Condition * 2-5Tbsp.
Moderate Condition * 1 Tbsp.
Light Condition * 1/2 Tbsp.

B4 Botanical Conditioner - Ideal for any coat which is very cottony silky or mats easily, dogs going through coat change, coats that are difficult to shine or where texture needs enhancing (Shih-Tzu, Lhasas, softcoated Yorkies, silky or cottony coated Poodles, Maltese, Bichons, Soft Coated Wheatens). Rinse according to the amount of coat control desired (less rinsing, more control).
Conditioning Group * B4 Botanical Conditioner
Super Condition * 3-4Tbsp.
Moderate Condition * 2 Tbsp.
Light Condition * 1 Tbsp.
* Measure desired amount of Bl Protein Conditioner OR B4 Botanical Conditioner into I Quart (32 oz) bottle. Fill half way with warm water. Shake vigorously to mix thoroughly.
Complete filling and shake again. This insures emulsification of the ingredients.
* Slowly pour onto freshly bathed, moist coat. Work one area at a time to allow for proper penetration, paying attention to ends of coat and easy mat areas (behind ears, armpits, privates). (NOTE; this conditioner will feel slick, but is not oily) These conditioners may be worked into problem areas full strength to add weight to fly-away ends and to tame dense or bushy areas.
* Rinse till desired conditioning level is achieved .
* Squeeze out excess water and towel blot dry, being careful not to tangle coat.
* Blow dry and style as usual.

CHART #4- BETWEEN BATH BRUSH-OUT
Once a show dog is "in oil" (holding coat) it is usually not necessary to brush in between.
Avoid over-brushing a dirty show coat and NEVER brush a dry coat, as it will break.
However, if the coat is of the type and construction that will "solidify" when the bath water hits it, a careful, pre-bath brushing with the use of a conditioning spray should be done, otherwise the coat will be impossible to deal with afterwards .
The #1 ALL SYSTEMS C4 Coat Enhancer is a light aerosol spray containing mink oil, lanolin and vegetable protein with a pleasant baby powder scent. The #1 ALL SYSTEMS B3 Humectant Oil is another good choice when mixed 1 Tablespoon to a 16oz spray bottle of warm water.
Spray coat lightly and brush, concentrating on the areas where the brushing is really necessary (armpits, privates, behind the ears, etc). Try to keep brushing show coat to a minimum, layer brushing with the lay of the hair to minimize breakage .
Spray heavier into matted areas and allow to set for several minutes. Separate serious mats with fingers and slowly pick out mat with a brush, starting from the ends of the hair shaft, working up the hair shaft to the root and finally down to the skin.
The C2 Coat Enhancer is the product used in the wrapping of long show coats.
Show Dogs - Bathing with C1 Super Cleanser Shampoo is recommended prior to showing as these products are oily.
Pet Dogs - Follow brushing procedure as stated above prior to bathing. C1 Super Cleanser Shampoo will remove any oiliness left by these products .
The C2 Coat Enhancer can be used to set parts on long coated breeds. Just part the coat, spray LIGHTLY and pat down with your hand. The dog can shake and the part can easily be found again.
