what kind of dog shampoo do you use on your dog? I only use one when Elvis is smelly but would like to try something different. I have heard good thing about a milk bath one that makes the dogs coat really soft and helps keep in moisture instead of stripping it.

I just paid $10 for dog shampoo. Then I bought mine at the dollar store. :roll:

I recently bought Earthbath Oatmeal & Aloe Vera shampoo at petco. It works really well and smells fresh, not perfumy. Mika tends to get a little extra itchy during the dry season so it helps relieve her skin itchies and cleans really well (she's white and somehow always manages to find the mud puddles). Call me crazy, but I also keep a small bottle of puppy shampoo on hand to wash her face (she also likes to roll around and often has green grass stain smears across her head!)

I've tried the special "white" shampoos, and although they do leave her very shiney, it doesn't seem to last very long and they almost all have icky strong scents.

Just my opinion.

I use the Mane and Tail stuff for my dogs. It's for horses, but it works well, especially on short coated breeds.

I use a wash called Buddy Wash. I love that stuff. It smells like lavender and mint. It makes their coats very soft. You can find it at independent pet shops or Trader Joes. You can also order from their web

I have tons of different shampoos! Red Dog shampoo, Yellow Dog shampoo, two different whiteners, Sulfamed (great for fungal skin conditions and kills fleas like no flea shampoo I've ever seen!) Tea tree oil shampoo, tar shampoo, medicated shampoos up the wazoo, sensitive skin shampoos, puppy shampoos, conditioners, and shampoos that just smell pretty. (Baby Dog shampoo is my favorite for puppies, it smells like baby powder.)

One of my whiteners I call "blue dog shampoo" because it turns the dog blue while it is being applied. It works by way of lightly dyeing the white hair blueish, which gives it a very crisp look. It only lasts as long as the dog stays clean, but is great to use just before a show. And it smells just fine!

I've been using the dog oatmeal shampoo from Wal Mart, it's only about $3.50 a bottle and a bottle lasts a long time. It has a vanilla smell and does not dry out her skin and coat even though she gets a bath about every 2 weeks.

Shampoo? Hmmmm. The dogs haven't been bathed in about a year......almost. I use Dr. Bronners Hemp soap, Eucalyptus scented. Dilute by at least 50% and it cleans real well.

This is funny- this is the same topic that made me join PBF. I was doing a google search for Dr Bronners soap, and this board came up. It was love at first site.

Oh, and I use Dr Bronner's on me, but Buddy Wash on Lucy.

Dr. Bronner's Lavander or Dr. Bronner's Almond soaps...both smell fantastic.

Dr. Bronner's Lavander soap is part of my tattoo healing regiment, too.
