If you don't have dog shampoo, the next best thing is actually dishsoap. Human shampoo (including baby shampoo) has a different pH than dog shampoo, but it certainly won't kill your dog if it's all you have.

To bring it closer to canine pH, dissolve about 1/3 cup of baking soda in some warm water, then pour this solution into an empty bottle. Fill the bottle almost full, add few squirts of human shampoo, and shake well to mix (be sure the cap is closed tight). Use this dilute solution as your dog shampoo.

Is human conditioner ok to use on dogs? Or is that a big NO NO?
