How to keep parti’s white?
I have constantly been asked that question as many people see my cockers as white.
My answer for this is WASHING! Yep, good old fashion given them a bath.
We wash them on a three day rotation. We do use cleaners like Ez Groom.
On some of the parti’s we do use Dawn dish soap with bleach, cuts the grease and grim really good.
No, it has not hurt the dogs that I have seen. But a good conditioner to follow is KEY! We use Cure Care which we get in a gallon jug and is purchased at Sally’s Beauty Supply.
One some our show dogs we have used powered bleach but this is VERY rare and this is usually for our show dogs only and on back legs where they might of peed.
It is called BW2 8 oz made by Clairol Professional price is approx 15.00 mix this with Salon Care 40 Volume Creme Developer 32 oz price is approx 8.00 you need to mix about 1 cup of powder in a container that you will throw away with the developer adding a little bit of developer at a time until it is about little thicker than ketchup. I add in conditioner and some soap into this mixture. You may need another batch of this depending on length of coat and thickness. This will bleach anything in site including but not limited clothing, your own hair, bath towels, etc. BE CAREFUL !
I have been told to leave it on for up to 15 minutes but I know this burns so I leave on no longer than 5 minutes tops.
Then I wash the dog completely and then follow up with a good conditioner and leave that on for at least five minutes. I use Cure Care which is the conditioner and I purchase the gallon size for about 8.00 this product is actually good for your own hair. This is non greasy, eliminates static, great for bleached hair. Really good product.
If you have a parti colored dog I recommend banding the areas of colored hair with mini rubber bands that you can get from Sallys for 1.00 to keep the hair from getting bleached that you need to stay that color.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND ON PUPPIES AT ALL!
