As much as we love our furry friends, let's admit it; They can smell really bad sometimes. Enter: DIY Dog Shampoo.
Picture this: You come home after a long day, take off your coat, and settle into your space. Your pup has been bouncing around, tongue out, happy barking, and ready to be pet. When you finally take a seat, he bounces up and sits on your lap, licking your face. As happy as you are, each breath in you are met with a familiarly frightening smell: puppy stench. Your little dude stinks!
For almost all dog owners, this is an all too common occurrence. That's where today's post comes into play. This DIY Dog Shampoo is perfect for times when your pooch is smelling nasty. It's all-natural, and fun to make, which means the whole family can join in!
Here's how to make your fur ball the little showstopper he (or she) is again!
What You'll Need:
- A quart of Water
- 8 ounces of Sulfate-Free, Gentle Shampoo
- 1 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar W/ Mother
- 1/3 cup of Vegetable Glycerine
- 2 tablespoons of Aloe Vera 98% Soothing Moisturizing Gel, 4 oz (113 g) Tube
How To Make:
Simply mix all of these ingredients into a spray bottle.
Let them settle for a few minutes.
Then, wet your pup with warm water, and start spraying your pup (safely to avoid eyes).
Work it into a lather using your hands, and once done, rinse it out with water.
Let him run around the backyard to dry his coat!
