Do I need to use a conditioner after shampooing my dog. I've not found many reviews or recommendations for conditioning.

Hmm, I guess it is a personal choice. I prefer to because it keeps Obi soft and less tangled. You might want to check the grooming section on the forums.

No, you don't NEED to and most people don't.

Personally, though, I think its a good idea. My dog has long, fluffy hair, and using only shampoo makes it dry, and more knotty, and less pleasant feeling. I also think that using a conditioner is probably better for their skin, especially in sensitive dogs.

It really depends on the individual dog. I would say, go ahead and try it, and if you like it, keep doing it. As for a recommendation, I like Bio-Groom Creme Rinse.
