I use Tropiclean as well and I love it! It gets the dogs nice and clean, rinses very well and leaves them smelling wonderful. Once they are dried, they are super soft as well. I have a short coated chihuahua and 3 pekingese and it works equally well on all of them.I use Tropiclean soap-free deep cleaning shampoo. It's berry scented, but smells like candy to me Unfortunately does not leave the dog smelling like candy, but does leave a fresh scent. I use a conditioner (don't remember the brand off the top of my head) and that smell is more lasting. The same bottle has lasted me well over a year, but I bathe them infrequently, my dogs aren't that big, and they're smooth coated.
