5. Homemade Dog Shampoo
If your dog loathes baths like Jenna does, dog shampoo might not seem like much of a treat. True, your dog might not love a bath while it’s happening, but dogs like to be clean. Being smelly bums them out.
Store-bought dog shampoos are expensive, and they’re often full of artificial fragrances and other mystery ingredients, so I was thrilled to run across this recipe for homemade, natural dog shampoo! To make this as healthy as possible, choose an eco-friendly, fragrance free dish soap, since this will be kindest on your pup’s skin. You can also add a few drops (3-5) of lavender essential oil to the mix, if you like! Lavender oil is a soothing scent for dogs, so it does double duty in a wash: calms her down during bathing and leaves her smelling like flowers when you’re done!
