Let's be honest. We all want our dogs to smell their best. But what is the best smelling dog shampoo? Well, there are a few factors that come into play when selecting a shampoo for your pup, such as ingredients, scent, and price. Read on to learn how to find the best smelling dog shampoos for your furry friend.


The first factor to consider when selecting a dog shampoo is the ingredients. While you may be tempted to reach for human shampoo or dish soap, these products can be damaging to your dog’s coat and skin due to their harsh chemical makeup.

As well, pets' skin differs from humans in many ways, including the fact that their skin is more alkaline than ours. Therefore, when we use our shampoos on them it destroys their protective barrier and makes them vulnerable to dryness and itching.

Instead, opt for a product specifically designed for dogs that contains natural ingredients like oatmeal and aloe vera which will help moisturize their skin and coat while also leaving them smelling great.


The next factor is scent—after all, this is what we are looking for! There are many scents available so it’s important to choose one that appeals to you and your pup. Some popular scents include lavender, coconut, and mint and some manufacturers produce unscented products too. Not sure which one is right for you? Ask friends with furry family members or head down to your local pet store where you can often sample different scents before purchasing!

Price Point

Finally, consider the price point of the product you select. Dog shampoos range in price from low-cost drugstore brands to more expensive salon products from specialty stores or online retailers. Whatever option you choose, make sure it fits within your budget without sacrificing quality or scent!

In the end, finding the best smelling dog shampoo doesn't have to be difficult if you know what factors to consider when making your purchase. Be sure to look at the ingredients list and make sure they are natural and gentle on your pup's skin and coat; pick a scent that both of you will enjoy; and think about what price point works best with your budget. With these tips in mind, choosing the perfect pooch-pleasing product shouldn't be too much of a bark! (See what I did there?)
