So...yesterday I decided to try this on my Coton. Yes, poor Cody Kermode was the victim of my experiment. I'm happy to say, he liked the smell, didn't bother me if he licked it off his mustache. Hellman's was in my fridge so that became the experimental product of choice. I think I will check other brands and ingredients before I do it again however after doing more research on Hellman's website after grooming my dog with it, to research if they recommend it for dog's hair conditioning....I see they have a product using Olive Oil so may very well give that a try.
The good news is....he feels great! I think it even helped take some of the yellow on his belly out. I didn't wrap him in Saran wrap, didn't have enough in the house but will do so next time. I think I will give this experiment another try in a few weeks. The hot sun is hard on the coats and Cody's seemed dry, maybe I am too fussy...but this mayonnaise idea kept coming into my head every time I looked at him so I finally relented and tried it. His ears and tail feel particularly lovely. His sides blow in the wind. I am happy. Anyone else tried this. He looked so good I thought I could slap a couple of tomatoes on him and two slices of bread and have a Coton mayonnaise sandwich....just joke....☺
