Hello everyone, I am new here and I am a novice in raising dogs too. Rocky is the first one I am raising and he is such a sweetheart. I have made hundreds of mistakes already but he has been so forgiving  :P

Okay so here goes my question, is it a must that dogs should be bathed only using a dog soap. My BIL told me this and I can't figure out if he is joking or being serious :unsure:. He said that dog loses it's hair if bathed by any other soap. Is that true? If it's true then can you guys suggest some good dog soaps?

Hello, using human shampoo will not cause hair loss but it will cause dry itchy skin and other problems.  Dog shampoo is alkaline formulated for dogs. Stay away from Hartz products and get a good shampoo from an animal supply store.

You should use a high quality pet shampoo for your dog.

Yes we should use dog soaps only. Human soaps are not good. But use high quality soaps as mentioned by @RandyMiller

Dogs' skin is different from a human. Human shampoo or soap might be too strong for and will possibly cause problems. As much as possible go for natural based shampoo or soap.

I agree with Gustavo. Dogs and human have different skins. So. you should use dog soaps only.

Dogs’ skin and human skin have very different Ph balances.Using a human shampoo on dogs disrupts the acid mantle, leaving your dog vulnerable to parasites, viruses, and bacteria. It also makes his skin feel dry and flaky, which can lead to repeated scratching and abrasions. This makes it easy for bacteria to invade. Better purchase the right soap/shampoo for dogs
