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?

As of 2/12, tolerating dairy, corn, legumes and some soy, but I limit soy to tamari sauce or modest soy additives. Won't ever try quinoa again!

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.
We use the same thing we use on ourselves. Any decent, inexpensive shampoo will do.
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.
