Choosing Dog Dry Shampoos (Buying tips)
Usage: If your dog is afraid of water or convalescing from an illness, get a dog dry shampoo that allows you to bathe it without water.
Avoid using dog dry shampoo on dark-colored dogs as the white powder can be tough to remove completely.
When removing excess shampoo powder, do not use a nylon dog brush as it causes static that makes dog’s coat stick out.
