Texturizing mist and Maxi Care are still in Production

Burnese Mountain Dog




The coat is thick, moderately long and slightly wavy or straight. It has a bright natural sheen. Extremely curly or extremely dull-looking coats are undesirable



The temperament is self-confident, alert and good-natured, never sharp or shy. The Bernese Mountain Dog should stand steady, though may remain aloof to the attentions of strangers







PROBLEM                                       SOLUTION

Detangling/Dematting          Apply full strength Moisture Plus liberally to the mat.  Wait 15 minutes.  Pull mat gently apart with fingers or comb.

Dry, damaged Coat               Our version of a hot oil treatment:  Wet dog with warm water, apply Moisture Plus liberally.  Wrap in hot towel for 15-20 minutes.  Shampoo with Moisturizing Shampoo and rinse.

Dingy White Coat                 Use Cleansing Shampoo on the first lather, wait 5 minutes then rinse.  Follow with Texturizing Shampoo lather and rinse.

Increase Undercoat               Line brush daily with Maxicare as soon as dog is finished shedding

Showing on a hot, dry day   Use Maxicare as your only coat dressing

Showing without full undercoat      Texturizing Mist (diluted 50:50 with water) while line brushing will hold coat up long enough for judging.

Spot Whitening/Urine Stains           Use a small amount of Cleansing Shampoo full strength, wait 5 minutes and rinse

Extra Volume                        Super Coat (diluted 50-50 with water) while line brushing.  If very humid try Texturizing Mist instead.

Shedding around house        Spray with Maxicare and brush daily.  Be sure to get down to skin.  Nothing will prevent shedding completely.  It is a normal, necessary process for these breeds.
