There are few things as relaxing as petting your dog once it's dried off after a foamy bath – if you're using the right shampoo, that is. Having a clean dog means you have a happy dog, even if getting him or her clean in the first place may be a bit of struggle.
When using a good shampoo, at least you can tick that off your list of things to worry about when it's time to bath your furry pal. If only getting them in the tub was as easy as getting a quality product.
When choosing a dog shampoo – especially if you've got a puppy or dog with sensitive skin – you should be careful of products with harsh chemicals.
Your best bet would be a hypo-allergenic shampoo that can effectively clean without resulting in inflammation, infection or bumps, and scratching.

How to use it
Using this doggie shampoo is the same as with any other shampoo. Just because it works such wonders for pets doesn't mean there's a special way to use it.
Get your dog nice and wet (this is as simple as your dog allows it to be) pour a generous amount of shampoo into your hand or on the back of your dog and start lathering and scrubbing away.
The shampoo is very gentle, but it is still recommended that you avoid getting any of it in the dog's eyes.
Once you're satisfied, you can rinse your dog (be sure to get all the soap off) and let him or her dry naturally or treat them to a blow-dry. Just keep in mind that not all dogs enjoy a blow dryer's hot air in the face. Voila – you've got a clean, fluffy pooch that smells great!
