This stuff is great! My dog always scratched her skin. Now since I started using this she is a total different dog. I hardly ever see her scratching. Thanks so much for this wonderful shampoo.
My Coon-hound was a very sick dog from food allergies and smelled terrible. I found this recipe and she smells great. We use it on the rest of the dogs too. I love inexpensive ways to take care of my animals. Thanks.
Fantastic! I personally do not have a dog but I made this up (sooo easy) for family and friends for their pooches as a christmas gift. I had some friends try it out first and they said their dogs fur was shiny and smelt better than ever.. Awesome recipe, thanks for sharing.
This is the BEST shampoo I have ever used on my dogs. It must be the glycerine that makes the difference. I have two dogs, a Lab mix and she sheds alot, the shampoo seemed to help release the trapped fur so it rinsed out and the rest combed out easily. My other dog is a sheltie/pom mix, and her undercoat is very dense and prone to tangles. It is a pain to comb out esprcially after a bath. Not this time, while still a job to groom her, the tangles combed out easily. Both look, smell and feel so good to touch. Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I will never again buy pet shampoo.
We love this shampoo. I've been using it for a year on our Golden Retriever, and a mixed breed with short hair. The short haired dog has a nice soft shine on his coat after a bath. The Golden comes out of a bath with silky, flowing fur. I don't add all the water; mainly because it won't fit in my shampoo jar, but I like the more concentrated shampoo - works well in the shower.
Absolutely brilliant. The fleas just fell off dead. You've made my day. Thanks. My little dogs will be forever grateful.
works just as well if not better than the store bought products
This does appear effective, my dogs are nice and soft and sweet-smelling. As others have mentioned, my one dog had been worrying at herself a bit, recently, I did apply ointment but she seems much more relaxed since her bath at the weekend! My male loves to swim and he jumped straight in the pool after being washed, but Ruby seems very happy to get lots of cuddles and attention for being so beautiful and looking and smelling so good :) Thank you, Titanium Chef, good to have this recipe, found in the I Recommend tag game.
I am reviewing this with NO stars, only because it will not effect the rating on this 'recipe', and because I'm not sure if I feel comfortable in agreeing or disagreeing with this formula. I made a batch of this at home yesterday, and tried it on my own dog. It did clean quite well, and she does smell good. I just don't know if it the best thing to use on a regular basis (I shall ask my vet). I have been a dog groomer for over 20 years, and yes, vinegar does help with smells, but it really only sets the smell and masks it. The vinegar helps to keep the odor from rubbing off on hands, clothing and furniture. I use a vinegar and water solution on clients dogs who come into the shop that have been sprayed by a skunk. (I use Summer's Eve vinegar douche... yes, really. You should see the looks I get while standing in the check-out line with 12 bottles in my cart!) It does help to mask the smell, but the minute the dog is in the rain or in the tub, you will smell it again. I do plan to give this formula a try on my next client who brings me a skunked dog, but only after I check with my vet on safety issues. Thank you for posting this, and I will try and update when I know more. (Made for PAC - Spring 2013)
This was easy to mix up and it made my dog smell better. I followed the recipe exactly as written. We will be using this more often.
