Short coated breeds benefit greatly from using the product. The added shine and healthy feel to the coat is amazing. The coats feel like silk all the time and glisten in the light. The increased richness of colors is also amazing, where the blacks are blacker, reds are redder and whites are pristine. The additional benefit is reduced shedding, so those little hairs that weave themselves into everything are so reduced that people are amazed at how little hair they find.
