Akita

FOR SHOWS & MAINTANANCE:  I start with Starfire’s GLUTTONY, our curative volumizing shampoo. GLUTTONY is SULFATE FREE, non drying, and preserves coat color. 

Rinse very well and follow up with Starfire’s GOSSIP, our curative volumizing conditioner. GOSSIP’s weight free formula builds body and fullness while adding shine. Again, use very little as it is very concentrated, you do NOT want to use too much.  Make a good lather with the GOSSIP and massage very well into the coat to the skin.  I recommend leaving the GOSSIP in for a few minutes then rinse with cooler water.

For that final touch, I spray Starfire’s DESIRE or Starfire’s FLATTERY. DESIRE continues the conditioning process by restoring sinner health and flexibility to weak, depleted, or overclarified hair. This spray instantly rebuilds hair’s integrity because it is specially formulated to replenish vital Keratin amino acids. FLATTERY provides texture, volume and shine with resilient support.  This spray contains Keratin for a curative seal, which protects the hair for improved styling control. 

Once you spritz the coat with either spray, proceed to blow dry with hot air.  The end result is shiny hair, full with texture.  I do this the day before the show.  At the show I use FLATTERY as a ringside spray.  (FLATTERY is a “must have” product for any grooming or show preparation regimen!)

Another other “must have” product is the Starfire’s NO STAIN, our powder that keeps tear stains out!  This is our proprietary product that we’ve used for over two decades –unlike any product on the market. TYLAN FREE *and* SAFE in the eyes (even for young puppies). You use this powder at the eye where the tear stains begin letting some of the powder get into the eyes.  Apply once a day. You should see results within four to five days of use.

TIPS FOR THE NO STAIN:  First, do NOT dip the same end of a q-tip into the jar twice to prevent contamination.  Second, NO STAIN works great wet or dry.  Put a wet (or dry) q-tip into the powder and roll the powder from the base of the staining against the grain towards the eye.  The product does not leave a paste or residue and can be easily wiped off (for show day application).

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Starfire’s recommends our purifying line for the ears and areas where they need lots of volume and NO separation, followed by our moisturizing line on the body for that extra WOW factor that shows in a properly maintained coat. 

FOR SHOWS & MAINTANANCE: First, you need a shampoo that will completely clean and volume to needed areas as ears. We present Starfire’s STRIPPER, a chelating shampoo that is more efficient than a clarifying shampoo.  

STRIPPER is a SULFATE and SODIUM CHLORIDE FREE shampoo that gently purifies and chelates hair. Use STRIPPER when you want a naturally shiny, healthy coat with volume and fullness.  This shampoo is used for show days only; when you get home we highly recommend an instant hydrating treatment to ensure your Spaniel’s hair remains resilient for the next show! For this, there is Starfire’s GREED, the ultimate treatment that infuses powerful vitamins, proteins and curative actives into the coat for optimal conditioning. Wet the ears then massage a little of GREED into the hair.  Leave the treatment in for at least 15 minutes before rinsing. After a thorough rinse, follow with a spritz of Starfire’s JEALOUSY, our multi-purpose leave in conditioner and ringside spray, and proceed to blow dry.  (JEALOUSY is a “must have” product for any grooming or show preparation regimen!)

NOTE: STRIPPER and GREED are CURATIVE products that work best together and should not be interchanged with other Starfire’s products for optimal results.  (for example: Stripper, our curating shampoo, should not be used with Insolence, our moisturizing conditioner.)

Second, for the body, you want a hydrating shampoo.  Use Starfire’s ARROGANCE, dilute 1 part of shampoo to 8 parts of water. You can use this for show days and for everyday maintenance.

After shampooing, follow with Starfire’s INSOLENCE to restore moisture, softness and shine that preserves hair color.  When we say “dime-size”, we mean it! Use a dime size of INSOLENCE to generate an emulsion in your hands, then massage it into the coat and skin. Leave it on for a couple of minutes and rinse with cooler water.

Following any bath, we highly recommend using JEALOUSY, our multi-purpose leave in conditioner, before blow drying.  JEALOUSY is also a dynamite anti-frizz ringside spray.  Spritz lightly before walking into the show ring or for daily brushing at home.  No residue, only a bouncy shiny coat!

Papillon

The trademark of this breathtaking breed is their large, fluffy ears. Although we cannot forget the Phalene, the signature appearance of the Papillon includes these beautiful ears with flowing fringe.

Starfire’s recommends our purifying line for the ears followed by our moisturizing line on the body for that extra WOW factor that shows in a properly maintained coat.  I have included grooming suggestions for the Papillon’s EARS, BODY, EYES, and TAIL.

First, you need a shampoo that will completely clean those gorgeous ears but leaves no oily residue.  This will give your Papillon’s ear fringe a sleek, curtain-like effect that flows and leaves no separation between the hair.  We present Starfire’s STRIPPER, a chelating shampoo that is more efficient than a clarifying shampoo.  

STRIPPER is a SULFATE and SODIUM CHLORIDE FREE shampoo that gently purifies and chelates hair. Use STRIPPER when you want a naturally shiny, healthy coat with volume and fullness.  This shampoo is used for show days only; when you get home we highly recommend an instant hydrating treatment to ensure your Papillon’s hair remains resilient for the next show!

For this, there is Starfire’s GREED, the ultimate treatment that infuses powerful vitamins, proteins and curative actives into the coat for optimal conditioning. Wet the ears then massage a little of GREED into the hair.  Leave the treatment in for at least 15 minutes before rinsing. After a thorough rinse, follow with a spritz of Starfire’s JEALOUSY, our multi-purpose leave in conditioner and ringside spray, and proceed to blow dry.  (JEALOUSY is a “must have” product for any grooming or show preparation regimen!)

NOTE: STRIPPER and GREED are CURATIVE products that work best together and should not be interchanged with other Starfire’s products for optimal results.  (for example: Stripper, our curating shampoo, should not be used with Insolence, our moisturizing conditioner.)

Second, for the body, you want a hydrating shampoo.

TIP FOR THE BODY: Mix 3oz of Starfire’s ARROGANCE (our moisturizing shampoo) with 1oz of Starfire’s GLORY (our whitening shampoo) with 16oz of water for a dynamic hydrating combination to keep the Papillon’s coat shiny and soft. You can use this for show days and for everyday maintenance.

After shampooing, follow with Starfire’s INSOLENCE to restore moisture, softness and shine that preserves hair color.  When we say “dime-size”, we mean it! Use a dime size of INSOLENCE to generate an emulsion in your hands, then massage it into the coat and skin. Leave it on for a couple of minutes and rinse with cooler water.

TIP FOR THE TAIL:  STRIPPER can also be used on the tail if you desire a fuller tail for the show ring, but remember that you must hydrate the coat with GREED when you get home.

Following any bath, we highly recommend using JEALOUSY, our multi-purpose leave in conditioner, before blow drying.  JEALOUSY is also a dynamite anti-frizz ringside spray.  Spritz lightly before walking into the show ring or for daily brushing at home.  No residue, only a bouncy shiny coat!

With any long coat that may require an “extra touch”, spritz a little Starfire’s REVENGE into wet hair to provide additional protection from heat, chemicals, friction, pollution, UV rays, and flat irons. REVENGE is a revolutionary spray that can withstand up to 525 degrees of heat. If you want your Papillon to have that BEST IN SHOW look in the ring, don’t forget REVENGE before you flat iron the coat.  We highly recommend this spray that will keep your Papillon’s hair straight throughout the day, even in humid weather.

Another other “must have” product is the Starfire’s NO STAIN, our powder that keeps tear stains out!  This is our proprietary product that we’ve used for over two decades –unlike any product on the market. TYLAN FREE *and* SAFE in the eyes (even for young puppies). You use this powder at the eye where the tear stains begin letting some of the powder get into the eyes.  Apply once a day. You should see results within four to five days of use.

TIPS FOR THE NO STAIN:  First, do NOT dip the same end of a q-tip into the jar twice to prevent contamination.  Second, NO STAIN works great wet or dry.  Put a wet (or dry) q-tip into the powder and roll the powder from the base of the staining against the grain towards the eye.  The product does not leave a paste or residue and can be easily wiped off (for show day application).

FOR SHOWS:  First, I use Starfire’s STRIPPER, a chelating shampoo that is more efficient than a clarifying shampoo.  STRIPPER is a SULFATE and SODIUM CHLORIDE FREE shampoo that gently purifies and chelates hair. 

NOTESTRIPPER, like all Starfire’s shampoos and conditioners, is very concentrated so use very little at a time.  

Make a good lather with the STRIPPER and massage very well into the coat to the skin, then rinse with warm water. You want to follow with Starfire’s GREED, the ultimate treatment that infuses powerful vitamins, proteins and curative actives into the coat for optimal conditioning. Again, make a good lather with the GREED and massage very well into the coat to the skin. Leave GREED in for at least 15 minutes before rinsing with cool water. You have to be very carefully with the ear fringes as they are very delicate and can brake easily, so it is a MUST to use GREED on the ear fringes always.

For that final touch, I spray Starfire’s DESIRE or Starfire’s FLATTERY. DESIRE continues the conditioning process by restoring sinner health and flexibility to weak, depleted, or overclarified hair. This spray instantly rebuilds hair’s integrity because it is specially formulated to replenish vital Keratin amino acids. FLATTERY provides texture, volume and shine with resilient support.  This spray contains Keratin for a curative seal, which protects the hair for improved styling control. 

Once you spritz the coat with either spray, proceed to blow dry with hot air.  The end result is shiny hair, full with texture.  I do this the day before the show.  At the show I use FLATTERY as a ringside spray.  (FLATTERY is a “must have” product for any grooming or show preparation regimen!)

FOR MAINTENANCE:  A beautiful show coat needs continued foundation between shows! I start with Starfire’s GLUTTONY, our curative volumizing shampoo. GLUTTONY is SULFATE FREE, non drying, and  preserves coat color. Dilute GLUTTONY 1oz to 8 oz of water.

Rinse very well and follow up with Starfire’s GOSSIP, our curative volumizing conditioner. GOSSIP’s weight free formula builds body and fullness while adding shine. Again, use very little as it is very concentrated, you do NOT want to use too much.  Make a good lather with the GOSSIP and massage very well into the coat to the skin.  I recommend leaving the GOSSIP in for a few minutes then rinse with cooler water.

Most important, I spray JEALOUSY or DESIRE before blow drying.  

TIP FOR DAILY MAINTENANCE: You can use JEALOUSY or DESIRE for show days and for everyday maintenance. I prefer JEALOUSY for daily brushing.

Pomeranian

For over 25 years, Starfire’s Pomeranians has set the bar for quality – both in standard and presentation.  I love when people approach me at the shows, “Tony!” (Yes, please feel free to call me Tony! I love meeting new people at shows and if we haven’t met yet, I look forward to meeting you soon) but people call “Tony! Please tell me… how can I make my Pom’s coat look like yours?” I’ve used the same regimen for so long and recommend the same for you!

Starfire’s recommends our purifying line for shows followed by our moisturizing line for a properly maintained coat between shows. 

FOR SHOWS:  First, I use Starfire’s STRIPPER, a chelating shampoo that is more efficient than a clarifying shampoo.  STRIPPER is a SULFATE and SODIUM CHLORIDE FREE shampoo that gently purifies and chelates hair. 

NOTESTRIPPER, like all Starfire’s shampoos and conditioners, is very concentrated so use very little at a time.

You want to follow with Starfire’s GREED, the ultimate treatment that infuses powerful vitamins, proteins and curative actives into the coat for optimal conditioning. Again, make a good lather with the GREED and massage very well into the coat to the skin. Leave GREED in for at least 15 minutes before rinsing with cool water.

SHOW PREPARATION TIP: I use STRIPPER and GREED once a month.

HOWEVER, IF I am campaigning a dog, I use STRIPPER and GREED every week.

For that final touch, I spray Starfire’s DESIRE or Starfire’s FLATTERY. DESIRE continues the conditioning process by restoring sinner health and flexibility to weak, depleted, or overclarified hair. This spray instantly rebuilds hair’s integrity because it is specially formulated to replenish vital Keratin amino acids.

FOR MAINTENANCE/ SHOWS:  A beautiful show coat needs continued foundation between shows!  

I start with Starfire’s GLUTTONY, our curative volumizing shampoo. GLUTTONY is SULFATE FREE, non drying, and preserves coat color. 

TIP FOR GLUTTONYFor this shampoo you dilute 1oz to 8 oz of water

SPECIAL TIPS FOR COLORS: If you are showing a black, silver cream, cream, wolf-sable, blue, blue merle or white I recommend Starfire’s GLORY shampoo. GLORY instantly eliminates unwanted warmth, off shades and dullness while it evens out hair color. Dilute 1oz of GLORY to 8oz of water, then continue as below.

Rinse very well and follow up with Starfire’s GOSSIP, our curative volumizing conditioner. GOSSIP’s weight free formula builds body and fullness while adding shine. Again, use very little as it is very concentrated, you do NOT want to use too much.  Make a good lather with the GOSSIP and massage very well into the coat to the skin.  I recommend leaving the GOSSIP in for a few minutes then rinse with cooler water.

Most important, I spray JEALOUSY or DESIRE before blow drying.

Tibetan Spaniel

FOR SHOWS: First, you need a shampoo that will completely clean the coat leaving no oily residue.  We present Starfire’s STRIPPER, a chelating shampoo that is more efficient than a clarifying shampoo.  STRIPPER is a SULFATE and SODIUM CHLORIDE FREE shampoo that gently purifies and chelates hair. Use STRIPPER when you want a naturally shiny, healthy coat with volume and fullness.   This shampoo is used for show days only. Before blow drying use DESIRE grooming spray.

When you get home we highly recommend an instant hydrating treatment to ensure your Spaniel’s hair remains resilient for the next show! For this, there is Starfire’s GREED, the ultimate treatment that infuses powerful vitamins, proteins and curative actives into the coat for optimal conditioning. Wet the ears then massage a little of GREED into the hair.  Leave the treatment in for at least 15 minutes before rinsing. After a thorough rinse, follow with a spritz of Starfire’s JEALOUSY.

FOR MAINTENANCE: I start with Starfire’s GLUTTONY, our curative volumizing shampoo. GLUTTONY is SULFATE FREE, non drying, and preserves coat color.

Yorkshire terrier

Starfire’s recommends our purifying line for the head followed by our moisturizing line on the body for that extra WOW factor that shows in a properly maintained coat. 

TIP FOR THE HEAD AND FACIAL HAIR: You use STRIPPER or GLUTTONY for the show ring, to make the head hair thicker and fuller, but remember that you must hydrate the coat with GREED when you get home.

TIP FOR THE BODY: For the blue part of the hair You mix 3oz of Starfire’s GLORY with 1oz of Starfire’s ARROGANCE with 16oz water or just plain Starfire’s GLORY for the blue, it makes it very shiny and highlights the coat. For  the tan areas use only ARROGANCE.

After rinsing the shampoo very well, it is recommended to towel dry them a bit and use INSOLENCE conditioner. Leave in conditioner for at least 15 minutes and rinse of. If You want to do the treatment, get a plastic bag, leaving the head of the dog out "of course" get a heating pad wrap this around the dog. Then get a big towel and wrap the dog so he will not be able to move and hold them for at least 15 minutes, then take the dog out of the hot plastic bag and let him cool for 5 minutes, rinse the dog very well with cooler water and I spray JEALOUSY to blow dry.

If the hair is very dry, for daily maintenance You can use treatment GREED doing the same procedure,  then spray with JEALOUSY to blow dry. 

On the show day, use REVENGE to iron the coat with-this is an amazing product because it will not only leave the coat silky, but also make the ironing non damaging (it withstand 274C degrees of heat), — REVENGE is for any breed that requires to have silky straight hair.  This will make them look amazing.

Another “must have” product is the Starfire’s NO STAIN, our powder that keeps tear stains out!  This is our proprietary product that we’ve used for over two decades –unlike any product on the market. TYLAN FREE *and* SAFE in the eyes (even for young puppies). You use this powder at the eye where the tear stains begin letting some of the powder get into the eyes.  Apply once a day. You should see results within four to five days of use.

TIPS FOR THE NO STAIN:  First, do NOT dip the same end of a q-tip into the jar twice to prevent contamination.  Second, NO STAIN works great wet or dry.  Put a wet (or dry) q-tip into the powder and roll the powder from the base of the staining against the grain towards the eye.  The product does not leave a paste or residue and can be easily wiped off (for show day application).

 WITH LONG FACIAL FURNISHINGS:  Put the product into cup and mix enough hot water to make a thick paste similar to toothpaste. Apply to facial hair and then take plastic sheet of wrapping paper and wrap and band facial hair with product on. For heavy staining, apply twice a day until staining is gone. For maintenance, repeat instructions but only comb out, reapply, and re-wrap every two days.
