The use of human conditioner on a dog is not recommended. This is because dogs' skin has a different pH than humans' does. Continuous use of human conditioning products can cause a dog's skin to become dry and even irritated.

Using a conditioner formulated for dogs can help with dry skin and also decrease the instance of tangles and matts. Make sure to always brush your dog thoroughly after bathing, especially long-haired breeds.
