Best Dog Shampoos

There is an abundance of dog shampoos on the market for all sorts of issues. The best dog shampoo for you and your dog will depend on the problems you are treating, such as allergies, dry skin, dandruff or odor.

Best Dog Shampoo for Allergies

This shampoo will not only clean your dog’s fur, it will also help to soothe any allergies your dog may have and the symptoms that come with it. You can get this product online or at most pet stores like PetSmart. This shampoo has a great blend of natural ingredients and essential oils like tea tree oil. By helping wash away allergens, it helps relieve your pup of any lingering allergies.

Best Dog Shampoo for Dry Skin 

Premium Pet Oatmeal Shampoo is well-known for helping pups with their dry skin, rough fur or dry patches. The oatmeal soothes their skin and helps with flakiness. It is also known to smell great and help with odor too. It has baking soda in it which is great for exfoliating dry skin. This shampoo also comes with aloe which helps keep your pup’s skin and coat moisturized and soft. It also comes with a great oatmeal cookie scent.

Best Dog Shampoo for Dandruff

Hartz Groomer’s Anti-Dandruff is the best dog shampoo for reducing your dog’s dandruff. It’s lightly scented and specifically formulated to reduce dandruff. This shampoo has salicylic acid which helps to gently exfoliate and cleanse your dog’s coat and reduce any flakes. It’s made without parabens or alcohol which ensures your pup’s coat will be hydrated and soothed instead of dried out and damaged.

Best Dog Shampoo for Odor

Earthbath Oatmeal & Aloe Dog & Cat Shampoo is an all-around great dog (and cat) shampoo, but it is especially great for controlling odor. It has a great vanilla-almond scent and is formulated to keep your pet smelling clean long after their bath. It’s free of any parabens and is perfectly safe for consistent usage. This shampoo is also great to treat any problems like allergies, dry skin and dandruff, but it is especially great for odor control.

All of these shampoos are paraben free and perfectly safe for your pet to use every time you give them a bath. Be sure to also do your own research on what is best for your pup. Always look at the ingredients as well and make sure that they are safe to use on your furry friend.
