Use a moisturizing shampoo made for dogs, an oatmeal formula is usually best.

Make sure to rinse well, and rinse with luke-cool water so you don't dry out the skin.

This, and dilute the shampoo. 1/2 shampoo, 1/2 water (or more). It doesn't need to be full strength to work, and it rinses out more easily.

I use coconut oil in my dogs food along with salmon oil to help with the dandruff. The above is good too until you can get her to produce enough oils to not be flakey.

If you want to try a different brand of shampoo, I think Earthbath is great. Their oatmeal shampoo is wonderful for adults, and their puppy shampoo is great too, although I think it smells like cough syrup.
