I don't bathe my dog all that much because hes a jack russel, hes small, and every time he goes outside, he voids the point of a bath, because I sware in 5 minutes he will absorb a month of dirt from outside lol

BUT I will bathe him now and then, despite the fact he seems to prefer to be fithly so he can pretend hes a hunter =P what should I use?

my skin is absurdly sensitive, I imagine to the gluten in thing's perhaps something else, but for now, what is a good gluten-free shampoo to wash my dear ole dog with?

Sometimes I just use plain water on my dear old dog. If I use something I purchased, I make sure I wash my hands well immediately after the bath. If you have a Cracker Barrel near you, they sell Kirk's Coconut Soap for a reasonable price. You can soak a bar of Kirk's in a gallon of water for a week or so, add oil, and make your own dog bath soap that lasts for quite awhile. (And the soaked diluted Kirks is a great pesticide for aphids if you garden. :D

We use the same thing we use on ourselves. :D Any decent, inexpensive shampoo will do. I will say, though: don't wash your dog in the winter at all, and only wash him a few times in the summer. Washing dogs too often is very bad for their skin and coat.

I'm going to disagree with this. Most human shampoos are too harsh for a dog's skin. You might get away with baby shampoo.

I agree with the other part, though. Far too many dog owners wash their dogs unnecessarily resulting in dry skin problems.

Pet foods and supplies are my business--we own a pet specialty retail store.

Depends on the breed. My toy poodle gets baths weekly with baby shampoo. It does well.

I can't tell you the last time I bathed my dog. I usually just use baby wash. However dear 'ol dog loves to play with the hose. Now that is warm he is having a field day and getting wet.

Simple Baby Wash can do your doggy good. Most vets will recommend it above any commercial "dog shampoo," as the ingredients in conventional animal shampoos can do more harm than good, especially if your pet is sensitive to chemicals. It's gentle on the eyes and skin, and of course, gluten free for both you and your poochie! Best of all, your puppy will smell great...until, of course, he decides to next roll around in the backyard.G

Good luck!

Add me to the list who uses baby shampoo or baby wash. I prefer baby wash because it makes her smell so good. :wub:
