    Default coat moisturizer???

    Does anyone have a recommendation for keeping Herman's coat moisturized during the winter? The issue is that he's afraid of his winter coat and his LariP fleece - because when I take them off, he gets 100s of little shocks (static). I can't say I blame him. So he RUNS and hides when he sees me get them. He used to love wearing both.

    I'm going to pick up a humidifier today that might hopefully help, but if anyone knows a good spray on moisturizing conditioner or any other advice that might help!!

    we use fabric softener on all of Bacon's stuff and he is a static machine during the winter especially when he's on the couch, he will roll over and it sounds like someone has a microphone in a bowl of rice crispies

    Well, in addition to topical stuff (we add coconut oil and have good results from buddy Wash lavender), maybe try some positive associations, like a special treat and a belly rub. Lupe is required to wear a down vest--I should find a pic, b/c it's hysterical--when we go camping if it's below 50. She was NOT amused until we practiced at home: put the vest on, play time!

    i rubbed him with a little of my water-based hair moisturizer last night but it didnt work. i didnt want to put too much, but maybe i'll try misting the coat LOL

    @SunDog I feel bad because he loves wearing his coat. maybe i'll trying giving him a treat to at least get him to not run away from it.

    We just bought a humidifier today bcuz we have a pellet stove n worried about Porkys breathing in the dry air (she doesn't have problems breathing but we didn't want to cause any either) n this isn't much help but it's funny she sits in front of it staring at it lmao she loves the thing
