Taking care of your dog’s coat doesn’t require expensive chemicals. You can make your own organic conditioner at home with only a few items found at your local grocery store. For instance, rosemary conditions your dog's hair and leaves a fresh aroma. Also, eggs are rich in protein and vitamins and help deep condition to remove mats and tangles.

Rosemary

Step 1

Pour 4 cups of distilled water into a medium pot. Bring the water to a boil.

Step 2

Add 2 teaspoons of rosemary to the water. Remove the pot from the heat and allow the mixture to set for 10 minutes covered.

Step 3

Set the colander on top of the bowl and cover it with a paper towel. Pour the mixture into the colander and strain out the rosemary. Allow the conditioner to cool.

Egg

Step 1

Separate an egg. Whisk the egg yolk in a bowl.

Step 2

Add water slowly to the bowl until the mixture is creamy. It should take about 1/2 cup.

Step 3

Whip the egg white into the mixture with the whisk until it is mixed completely.
