how to choose dog shampoo

𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗦𝗵𝗮𝗺𝗽𝗼𝗼 𝗶𝘀 𝗯𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗺𝘆 𝗱𝗼𝗴?

There are a large number of dog shampoos on the market, but how can we choose the best shampoo for our dog without fear of being wrong? With such a variety of dog shampoos on the market, we have doubts as to which is the most suitable for our 4-legged dog.

Sometimes we see specific shampoos for each breed on the shelves, but within the same breed the condition of the hair can vary. 

"It may be that the same breed lacks hydration or volume, has sensitive skin or that sometimes it is necessary to apply a repellent / anti parasitic. It can also be a puppy or have white fur that is yellowing, or black hair that is losing intensity. You may also just want a shampoo for an area that just got dirty and don't want to mess around with lather and water."

The dog shampoo must be specific for them and in addition to taking care of the hair, it must also take care of the skin with an optimal result of healthy, strong and shiny hair.

In this post we group all of this into just 8 shampoos that will take care of each type of hair / skin condition, taking into account the time we have.

Types of shampoos

1. Sensitive skin Shampoo

For sensitive skin it has to be a hypoallergenic shampoo suitable for dogs of any breed and age. It must be specially indicated for sensitive and delicate skin. With natural products to be able to bathe it in frequent washes if necessary. The shampoo you need is Relax shampoo

2. Repellent and anti-parasitic shampoo

That is indicated for all breeds of any age. With ingredients that repel and eliminate the adhesion of fleas and ticks among other external parasites. The shampoo you need is Bye Bye shampoo


3. Moisturising Shampoo

Does it lack hydration or is it long hair? In this case, the shampoo must provide great hydration to the hair to maintain beautiful long hair or recover dehydrated or brittle hair of any length from the cuticle to the ends, providing greater elasticity. The shampoo you need is Hidratante shampoo

4. Vitalizing Shampoo

Do you need to give volume to your hair? Is he short-haired or wire-haired? Curly or wavy? With a lot of undercoat?

The most suitable shampoo is the Vitalizante shampoo since it provides volume to dogs of the Poodle, Bichon Frisé, etc. 

In short-haired dogs it will help to detach the shedding hair during the bath. Indicated for the hard hair of Schnauzers, Terriers, Griffons and similar; Curly like Poodle, Bichon Frize, etc.; Wavy like for example the Kerry Blue Terrier; and with a lot of undercoat such as Bob Tail, Soft Coat Watern Terrier, Coton e Tulear. 


5.Black or white hair enhancers

The shampoo you need is Blanc, which despite its name is suitable for white hair as well as black hair.

This shampoo corrects yellowish tones, leaving a nuclear white colour and in black, grey and blue colours, it intensifies the tone, giving hair more shine.

6.Antitoxins and antipollution Shampoo

Do you live in the city? It has been proven that hair in the city gets dirty and matted faster than in other environments.

There are shampoos for city dogs with the addition of eliminating the effect of pollution for a longer time.

This type of Detox shampoo repairs the dog's hair and creates an invisible film on the entire coat that repels pollution, leaving the hair clean for longer.
