DIY Dog Shampoo

A few people have asked me what I use for our pets and I told them I would post it. As tonight is dog bath night I was again reminded to post my recipe!  So here it is:

1 cup liquid dish soap (I used Dawn for sensitive skin)
1 cup white vinegar
1 quart warm water


1. Mix the three ingredients in a large bowl and then transfer to an empty squeeze bottle (like an old shampoo bottle). Give it a little shake to make sure it is mixed.
2. Apply to your doggy just as you would normal shampoo. It is best if you can massage it into the fur and let sit for 5 minutes. My dogs don't mind as long as I keep massaging the shampoo around.
3. Rinse dog thoroughly with warm water. Towel dry.

I like the vinegar in this recipe.  Two of my dogs have lots of skin allergies and reactions that causes them discomfort! They always seem to be much better after using this shampoo! 

Happy pet bathing!
