Crown Royale - Product By Breed Recommendations

Formula 1 is designed to specifically give a superfine texture to your dog’s coat, along with the proper amount of body. We recommend using formula 1 on all fine texture coats. Formula 2 is designed to give a medium bodied texture to your dog’s coat. We recommend using formula 2 on long coated breeds. Formula 3 is designed to give a thick, full-bodied texture to your dog’s coat. If you feel you need extra texture on your dog’s furnishings, use our Crown Royale Bodifier.

All formula recommendations are based on coat texture and body that conforms to the individual breed standard. These recommendations were made after extensive testing on dogs by many of the nation’s leading professional dog handlers and well known dog breeders.
