Default What is the best puppy shampoo?

Hello,
I was wondering what shampoo I should use for my little Gizmo. The breeder recommended Hartz but I have heard bad things about that company.
Thanks

I'm not too sure either. Maybe we will get some good opinions on this. Is Baby Shampoo ok? Maybe something that moisturizes the skin/coat?

I started out with the Hartz puppy shampoo, but was not too pleased with it. So I started checking around at our local pet store and came across Lambert Kay products. I bought a bottle of the Oatmeal/Baking Soda shampoo and absolutely love it. It's not a puppy shampoo, but is very mild. Then I went back and bought their leave in creme rinse, Fresh N Clean. I'm a huge fan of these products and they aren't terribly expensive. Usually around $5.00 to $6.00 bottle and they are fairly large bottles.

There are other good pet shampoos on the market, but you won't find them at Walmart. Check out your local pet stores.

I use baby shampoo because my fiance is allergic to the dog shampoo.

We use ChlorhexiDerm Shampoo made by DVM Pharmaceuticals. It is an Antiseptic, Cleansing Formula with Emollients and leaves the coat smooth, soft and shiny. It was recommended by the woman who runs the rescue group that I adopted Tucker from. She said that she uses it on all of her dogs and loves it. I bought it at our vet's clinic.

I use a dog shampoo and conditioner called Buddy Wash made by a company called Cloudstar. As of right now, I don't think you can purchase it in stores, but you can order it online at www.cloudstar.com

They are good sized bottles for the price, especially since chi's are small and don't need a lot when taking a bath. They make a regular formula and a flea formula. And, both formulas have a matching Buddy Spray that smells just like the shampoo/conditioner. I have the lavender and mint scented and Chico's skin and coat are doing wonderfully with it.
