Shampoo

Just wondering if anyone has any favourite shampoo that they use?
Whether it be homemade or store bought.

my wife is a groomer and only uses this. it makes the dogs smell really good. even before she was a groomer she would bring a bottle to whatever groomer we went to and asked them to use it. no groomer had a problem using our own shampoo.

I like the Bio-Groom line of shampoos. I use the black one for the dark dogs and mix it with their texturizing shampoo for the dog shows.

We make our own for all the dogs in our family! I also give as gifts and decorate the bottles with raffia bows and stick on paw prints!

SHAMPOO:
Items Needed:
  • Castile Soap (natural, mild human soap, non GMO) can be purchased at a local health food store or over the internet. Most health food stores carry Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap which is already scented, it’s about $10 for 16 oz. so this will make 4 regular recipes. FYI, most dogs do not like the peppermint scented one!
  • Vegetable Glycerin – Food Grade (human moisturizer used in lotions) can be purchased at a local health food store or over the internet. 16 oz is approx. $7 and will make 4 regular recipes.
  • Empty Plastic Bottle (an empty shampoo bottle or water bottle with a valve on top is convenient)
  • Optional: Essential Oils of our choice – Lavender EO is very soothing to the skin and senses. Can be purchased at a local health food store.
  • Funnel
  • Purified Water
Natural Shampoo
1/2 Cup Castile Soap
1/2 Cup Vegetable Glycerin (this amount can be increased if your dog has a dry a coat or flakey skin)
1 Cup Water (non-floride) Add the water to the bottle first to avoid bubbles.
OPTIONAL: 10 Drops of Lavender Essential Oil (or your choice of EO) You can use the EO’s even if the Castile Soap is already scented.


Using a funnel, measure and pour ingredients into an empty shampoo bottle or water bottle. Add drops of Essential Oils (your discretion as to how much) directly into shampoo bottle. Turn bottle upside down slowly a few times before each use. Keep away from eyes during use.

For a rinse: mix ˝ to 1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar to 1 quart of water. Vinegar is also an insect repellent! Organic ACV from the health food store is the best as it contains the "mother tincture" that has the live enzymes (which will help "yeasty or itchy dogs"), but you can use grocery store ACV too! Work into dogs' coat in small patches covering entire dog and let "drip dry"!

Keep away from eyes during use.

I buy a shampoo from a local groomer that they use on their clients. It's made from Emu oil. Love it

When I bath my dogs (hasn't happened in a long, long time) I use castile soap in bar form. 1. Wet the dog 2. Lather the dog (with bar of soap) 3. Dog in tub for rinse.
