This all natural oatmeal dog shampoo contains no harmful chemicals or toxins and will leave your dog fresh and clean plus the oatmeal will help sooth his skin.

Best Homemade Dog Shampoo: All Natural Oatmeal Dog Shampoo

If you’ve ever owned a dog, you know they can get downright stinky sometimes! And while the easiest option is to cart your four legged friend to the nearest groomer, that isn’t exactly economical. At Petsmart a basic bath will cost you approximately $20. Think about it; just having your dog bathed once a month will cost you around $240 a year… and that doesn’t include taxes or tips.
If you’re able to, I suggest bathing your dog at home. Yes, it’ll probably be messy, but it’ll save you some serious cash and you can ensure your dog gets a quality washing. (Especially if you use this best homemade dog shampoo recipe).
In addition to the cost, you have to wonder what sorts of chemicals and ingredients are in the products being used on your furry family member. The next time you’re at the store, wander down the pet aisle and inspect a bottle of dog shampoo for yourself. Artificial colors? Fragrances? Yikes! And that’s just the tip of the chemical iceberg.
Instead of using store-bought shampoos, I recommend using this “best homemade dog shampoo”. The ingredients are all natural, so you know your fur baby isn’t being exposed to anything toxic or harmful.
In terms of ingredients (no chemicals!), this is definitely the best homemade dog shampoo; however, it is also extremely easy to make. You can tackle this recipe in about 5 minutes. In addition, I think it is the best homemade dog shampoo recipe because it only includes 4 ingredients (one of which is water). All 4 of those ingredients are things you may very well already have in your kitchen, and if not, they’re pretty inexpensive at the store.
Most importantly though, this is the best homemade dog shampoo recipe I’ve encountered because it works! Your dog will be degreased, smell good, and possibly be less itchy due to the oatmeal.
Unfortunately, if you suspect your dog has fleas, this recipe won’t do much good. Lucky for you, I also have a recipe for homemade flea shampoo.
