Over the years, I have tried different shampoos for bathing Spencer the Dog. Most of the time Spencer is coated in a layer of dirt from digging up the yard. With Spencer always being dirty, I figured the harsher chemicals would get him as clean as possible. Those shampoos also guaranteed to rid your dog of fleas while leaving them feeling clean. Since, Spencer is a Labrador; his thinner coat of fur seems to leave him more sensitive to skin irritation. The only thing those other shampoos did for Spencer was to make his skin raw and scratching became his favorite thing to do.
Through trial and error, I have found that the Fresh ‘n Clean Oatmeal and Baking Soda shampoo was the gentlest on his skin and didn’t leave him scratching for days after his bath. His fur began to feel soft, whereas before it had felt dry and brittle. Spencer still tolerates his bath, but finally, for the past few years he has been able to rest comfortably once his bath is over.
You can find Fresh ‘n Clean products at Petco, Pet Supermarket, Pet Supplies Plus and other places where Pet Specialty products are carried.
