I just checked my dog's shampoo. It has a wonderful oat formula on it. My husband is on the way home from up north with 2 dirty dogs. I will have to go to the store and hopefully find some gluten free dog shampoo. Does anybody know of any that are gluten free?

My vet recommended using baby shampoo. Many baby shampoos are gluten free. He told me to dilute the baby shampoo with plenty of water and then use that. I think we have a vet on board here, so perhaps she'll have a better solution.

I am in the middle of creating all natural gluten-free pet products. I have a friends dog to try them on next week and if it is to my satisfaction then I will be putting it out on the market. You can always privately message me.

I've always used Joy dish soap. Sounds bad, but it's not. They don't get washed daily or even weekly fo rthat matter. If I am in a pinch, I just use the basic family shampoo from suave. Then they smell like lavendar mmmmmm...

Dogs should only be bathed when necessary, they have a natural oil in their coat that also protects the skin.

Dishsoap can be used in a pinch but you must protect the eyes from getting any soap in them, and rinse well.

Baby shampoo is ideal - it does not strip the natural oils and it does not harm the eyes, should any get in them.

Don't ya love spring? Wet / muddy dogs with wagging tails.....

The baby shampoo worked fine. We only bath them if they absolutely needed. After a weekend up north they are pretty yucky. My hubby was also afraid of ticks. Nothing like that doggy smell to know they need a bath bad!!!

Now, depending on the type of dogs you have if their coats feel kind of dry you may want to get a non perfume like the safeway no name liguid fabric softener to use as a conditioner. We all used to do that with our long-haired dogs for dog shows. It would cut out the static too, especially if you are in a dry climate.

We have a llewellin setter and an English setter. The llewellin feels like a rabbit. In the Winter we add a little oil to her food to help her coat. That is what the vet told us to do. They are bird hunting dogs. Always fun to comb out the llewellin after a hunting trip. Hours getting those burrs out. The English setter is only 5 months so don't know how long her coat will grow. We got her in March and she was a fluff ball of fur. I'd never heard of using fabric softner, but makes sense. Thank you for all the tips.
