Just as it is important to be aware of what we feed our dogs, it's important to be aware of what we put on their skin. I love this recipe for Soothing Homemade Dog Shampoo because it is simple and free of any toxic ingredients.

I used Castile soap because it is all natural and vegetable based. Make sure when buying, look for pure Castile (such as this brand) to ensure it's free from added chemical detergents. There are many brands of Castile soap and not all of them are good as they contain fragrance and chemicals….
