How to Choose the Best Soap for Your Dog's Coat Type

Choosing the right soap for your dog can be a daunting task, especially with so many options available on the market. Here are five fantastic Bathbury dog soap products and which breeds and coat types they would work best with.

  1. Kaolin Honey Castile is a great option for purifying clean with organic oil and great lather. This soap is perfect for breeds with a smooth or short coat, such as Boxers, Beagles, and Greyhounds. These breeds tend to have oilier skin and can benefit from a more purifying soap. The Kaolin Honey Castile soap will help to remove any dirt and grime from their coats while leaving their skin feeling nourished.

  2. Goat Milk Castile is made for the coat with olive oil and won't strip the coat. This soap is perfect for breeds with a long, silky coat, such as Afghan Hounds, Maltese, and Shih Tzus. These breeds tend to have sensitive skin and need a soap that won't irritate their skin or strip their coats. Goat Milk Castile soap will gently cleanse their coats and leave them feeling soft and silky.

  3. Black Wood Castile is for odor with activated charcoal. This soap is perfect for breeds that tend to have a strong odor, such as Basset Hounds, Bulldogs, and Shar-Peis. These breeds can benefit from a soap that helps to eliminate odor and leaves their coats smelling fresh. Black Wood Castile soap with activated charcoal will absorb any odors and leave their coats smelling great.

  4. Oatmeal Castile is for skin with oatmeal and goat milk. This soap is perfect for breeds with sensitive skin or allergies, such as Boxers, Bulldogs, and Pugs. These breeds often suffer from skin irritations, dryness, or itching. Oatmeal Castile soap with oatmeal and goat milk will soothe their skin and reduce any irritation or itching.

  5. Castile Liquid Wash is for all-around use. This soap is perfect for breeds with a combination coat, such as Australian Shepherds, Border Collies, and Golden Retrievers. These breeds have a mix of short and long hair, and they can benefit from a soap that cleanses both the coat and skin. Castile Liquid Wash soap can be used all over your dog's body and will leave their coat and skin feeling clean and refreshed.

Choosing the right soap for your dog's specific needs is crucial for their overall health and happiness. Consider your dog's breed, coat type, and skin needs when selecting a soap. With Bathbury's five great options, you can find the perfect soap to keep your dog looking and feeling their best.

When it comes to trying new products for your furry friends, it's always important to consult with your veterinarian first. While the products we recommend may work well for many breeds and coat types, each pet is unique and may have individual needs or sensitivities.
