Sham-Pooch Dog Shampoo

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Titanium Chef

If you wash your dog(s) half as often as we do, then you still spend a fortune on dog shampoo. I found this recipe on a couple of different websites... I just tried it out on our dogs and it worked great (of course that's just my opinion, you'd have to ask the dogs for the definitive answer).

Titanium Chef, thank you,thank you!! I mixed up your recipe,and washed my yorkshire Terrier,oh my goodness she smells so good.Pebbles has a very "bad" body odor~~ I have tryed (I think)every shampoo on the market,plus using my own shampoo! She is very greasy as well.I would bath her,and the next day,it was like she had never been bathed. One other thing,I always had to comb and brush her before her bath.Well I tested your "Sham-pooch"and bathed her first,and it was so easy to comb all the tangles out. I really can't thank you enough for posting this recipe.I would give you 100* if I could.
