I know its not important because they shouldn't be bathed except when the get into something, but is a coconut oil based shampoo ok, they are out of stock of the oatmeal based
also, doesn't chlorinated water take a lot of the oils out of their skin too, should they be hosed off after going in the pool?
Only if it's a shampoo specifically formulated for dogs. Human shampoos -- even those for babies -- are far too acidic and irritate dog skin.is a coconut oil based shampoo ok, they are out of stock of the oatmeal based

I always hose mine off with fresh water after swimming in our chlorinated pool. I ended up getting a Booster Bath and it resides on the side of our house near our pool deck. It has been a Godsend for my back when rinsing these guys each and every time they're in the pool.Originally Posted by wkbrdr03

I don't bathe often but this summer they seem to get into a lot of dead smelly fish so I have been using Buddy wash..it seems to be a good shampoo. I think whatever you use is probably fine because like you said you don't bathe often.
