Dog Dry Shampoo : What is it?

Dog Dry Shampoos

A dog dry shampoo removes dirt and grease from a dog’s coat without using water and wet soap. It comes in white powder that contains grease-absorbing agents and antibacterial substances that rid dirty dog coats of oil, dirt, and odor. It is used prior to wet bathing or during the cold winter months.

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.

Usage information

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.
