Caring for long-haired dogs requires several hours of brushing each week. Rosemary, an herb that dates back to ancient times, helps fight dandruff, whereas, coconut oil helps create a silky coat. Also, the aroma leaves Fido's fur smelling clean and fresh.

Step 1

Boil 4 cups of water in a medium pot.

Step 2

Pour 2 teaspoons of dried or fresh rosemary into the water. Remove the mixture from the heat and let it steep for 10 minutes while covered.

Step 3

Cover the colander with a large paper towel or cheesecloth. Set it on top of the medium mixing bowl.

Step 4

Strain the rosemary from the mixture. Pour the liquid into a medium spray bottle.

Step 5

Add five or six drops of coconut oil to the mixture and shake.

  • If your furry friend starts itching, stop using the leave-in conditioner. He may have a reaction to the ingredients. Seek help from your veterinarian.
