Human skin has a normal pH balance of 5.5-5.6, which is on the acidic sideโ€ฆ Using a human shampoo on dogs disrupts the acid mantle, leaving your dog vulnerable to parasites, viruses, and bacteria. It also makes their skin feel dry and flaky, which can lead to repeated scratching and abrasions.

If you own a dog, you've heard this rule: 1 year for Fido equals 7 years for you.

Turns out, the math isn't that simple.

Dogs mature more quickly than we do early on.

Do you let your dog sleep in your bed with you at night? Research has shown that slightly less than one-half of all pet owners share their bed or bedroom with their pet.

Baby shampoo is the only safe alternative where human shampoo is concerned, unless you use a shampoo specifically formulated for dogs.

Baby shampoos are formulated and designed for sensitive skin and are made to be a very mild shampoo.
