Looking for fresh and clean dog shampoo? It’s nice to get your dog washed up, but it’s great if the shampoo also makes them smell good too.

I’ve been looking around for dog cleansers that not only do the job, but leave a nice scent on the pup when the bath is over. Of course every shampoo is advertised as the best thing ever, but I also looked for ones that had good user reviews. I checked on several different sites to get a broad range of user opinions. I don’t like to just take the seller’s word for it!

These are 5 of the best ones I found. Obviously not an all-inclusive list, but these got good reviews for not only getting your dog nice and clean, but also leaving them smelling nice.

Earthbath Shampoos for Dogs

Earthbath Mango Tango Shampoo for DogsEarthbath Mango Tango Shampoo for DogsEarthbath Mango Tango Shampoo for DogsEarthbath Orange Peel Oil Shampoo for DogsEarthbath Orange Peel Oil Shampoo for DogsEarthbath Orange Peel Oil Shampoo for Dogs

The Earth Bath shampoos are made of natural ingredients that are 100% biodegradable, and gentle on not only your pet, but you as well. At the very least you are getting the shampoo on your hands when you bathe your dog, and stuff does absorb through your skin. But if your dogs are like mine, you end up getting a bath in the stuff too. 🙂

Mango Tango Shampoo for Dogs

The Mango Tango product has the following ingredients:

  • Purified water,
  • renewable coconut-based cleansers,
  • gentle-conditioning agent,
  • aloe vera,
  • hydrolized wheat protein,
  • glycerine,
  • mango essence, and
  • olive oil squalene (natural preservative).

Reviewers described the product as leaving the dogs coat shiny and soft, makes the dogs smell sweet, and doesn’t irritate the skin.

Earthbath Orange Peel Oil Shampoo for Dogs

As for the Orange Peel shampoo, it contains d’Limonene (orange peel oil) which is a known deodorizer and degreaser, plus helps to remove stains in your dogs fur.

The ingredients include:

  • Purified water,
  • renewable coconut-based cleansers,
  • d’Limonene (orange peel oil), and
  • olive oil squalene (natural preservative).

People who have used this dog shampoo say it “lathers thick and keeps our dogs smelling fresh” and that it gets out bad smells without drying out the dogs skin.

Nootie Shampoos for Dogs

The next 2 fresh and clean dog shampoos are made by Nootie. They are also advertised as being made from natural ingredients.

There are no sulfates or harsh chemicals in these shampoos, and also they are Paraben free.

It’s also important to note that these shampoos are safe to use along with topical flea & tick products! As important as flea and tick protection is, sure don’t want to mess up the effectiveness of whatever you are using on your dog. Not to mention the stuff is expensive, so don’t want to have to buy a new batch because you shampooed your dog!

Soft Lily Passion Restoring Argan Oil Shampoo for Dogs

The lily scented Nootie shampoo has the following ingredient list:

  • Purified Water,
  • Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate (surfactant: helps to cut the surface tension of the water to allow the shampoo to do its job),
  • Polyquaternium-7 (conditioner),
  • Cocamidopropyl Betaine (originates from coconut oil),
  • Ethylene Glycol Distearate (another surfactant),
  • Laureth-4 (surfactant and emulsifier),
  • Glycerin (moisturizer),
  • Sodium Chloride (salt),
  • Citric Acid,
  • Argan Oil,
  • Safflower Oil,
  • Oatmeal Extract,
  • Fragrance, and
  • Phenoxyethanol (preservative).

Reviewers talk about how this Lily Passion shampoo makes their dog “smell amazing” and that the fragrance lasts for a long time.

Nootie Sweet Pea & Vanilla Nourishing Jojoba Oil Shampoo for Dogs

This shampoo is described as a gentle cleanser and good for dry coats.

The ingredients include:

  • Purified Water,
  • Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate,
  • Polyquaternium-7 (conditioner),
  • Sodium Chloride,
  • Cocamidopropyl Betaine,
  • Glycerin (moisturizer),
  • Ethylene Glycol Distearate,
  • Fragrance,
  • Citric Acid,
  • Jojoba Oil, and
  • Phenoxyethanol (preservative).

It has a lot of the same ingredients as the Lily Passion shampoo, but instead of Argan oil it has Jojoba oil. And of course a different scent!

Reviewers noted that this shampoo lathers up nicely and the “smell seems to last longer than most dog shampoos” and is quite noticeable.

TropiClean Spa Renew Shampoo

And lastly, here is one shampoo for dogs by TropiClean that I felt worthy of including on this list.

This product contains white tea, ginger and pink grapefruit to clarify and detoxify the dogs fur. It is a cocoa-based cleanser with botanical emollients strengthen and revitalize the coat.
