Ah, summer with dogs: much-anticipated trips to the dog park, rambling walks down wooded paths, and quick, cool dips in the river. The only downside? One stinky dog. Luckily, there’s a canine shampoo for every situation, with heavenly scents that might encourage even more baths.
For your dog’s health and safety, choose a shampoo with pet-safe ingredients. We’re especially fond of formulas that emphasize natural ingredients and cut out harsh chemicals, additives, and dyes. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite options, including many with organic ingredients.
With an oatmeal formula that relieves super-itchy skin, this shampoo, price-wise, is a steal. Plus, the addition of coconut, lime, aloe, and lemon verbena give your canine’s coat an incredibly fresh scent. $5.99
This non-toxic dog shampoo is excellent for dogs with allergies and sensitive skin. Made from soapberries that produce a mild herbal surfactant called sapindus (which acts like soap), this shampoo is gentle yet effective. Also eucalyptus oil is the only fragrance added! $18.95
This “haute” product boasts all-natural ingredients and is enriched with almond oil. Shea butter and vitamin E protect and nourish skin, while the lavender oil scent helps soothe nerves. $11.95
This 100% all-natural pet wash with aloe and lemongrass works up an amazing lather to get your canine extra clean. Detergent-free, paraben-free, and sulfate-free, the formula is safe, non-toxic, and made by a small family-owned company in the U.S. $15.98
This all-natural dog shampoo is really popular, and is 100% biodegradable and cruelty-free. Light vanilla and almond scent lingers after the bath, while oatmeal and aloe calm skin irritation and dryness. Reasonably priced and well-reviewed, this product is an all around fur-saver. $9.15
USA-made (and proud of it), this shampoo has built-in conditioners that help remove static and tangles. Free of dyes, alcohol, phosphate and more, this pet wash smells like mangoes and peaches – and is very reasonably priced. $5.97
Vermont Soap Organics is the first USDA certified organic pet shampoo. Made from organic coconut, olive and jojoba oils, organic aloe vera and essential oils, it’s mild and leaves a fresh lemongrass scent. A little on the pricier side, but fans of this product swear by it. $14.47
The rosemary and lemongrass scent of this pet wash is enough to keep many dog lovers coming back for more. It also helps that Odie & Cody is vegan, organic, hypoallergenic, and can be used on puppies and kittens. Though it doesn’t get super-foamy, it’s extra0concentrated so you won’t need much. Plus, have you checked out the clever, adorable packaging? $17.99
This dog wash is perfect for pups with sensitive skin because it contains aloe, jojoba and coconut oils that help relieve itchy skin. The tearless and soap-free formula is great for skittish dogs. Plus, even the bottle is made with certified recycled materials. $12.95
If you have any concerns about your pet’s skin or coat health, it’s always a good idea to check with your vet.
