    What breed are they? Not every breed's coat gets shiny! A rough-coated breed may be perfectly healthy without a shiny coat.

    You can try adding some fish oil to their food. What type of food are they on?

    How often do you bathe them? That could have an effect on thier coats. But I have to tell you that no matter what I do, Millie's coat NEVER shines. It always looks dull. Chester, on the other hand, shines on the brown part and his white hair looks like spun glass, it's so shiny. All dogs are different.

    It could also be that the Pedigree just doesn't give them everything they need.

    You can get any kind of Efi Caps or Missing Link at any store like Petsmart, but IMO your$ would be better spent feeding them dry Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul in addition to the wet, instead of the Pedigree.

    I bathe them once a month and when ever they get dirty.
    I have tried the chickn soup dry food like i feed the pedigree with the canned food and they wouldn't eat it. i was at a total lose so i put a little pedigree with it and they gobbled it up i don't understand it. they are just silly doggies i guess chewie would it both te same i don't knowguess cause she's puppy any suggestions

    Nutro Max does really well with Layla's coat, she's really shiny, except for her tail..rather strange.
