Australian Dog Shampoo for Sensitive Skin

Backed up by science and endorsed by our CEO, Ralphie J. Cocker, our dog shampoo for sensitive, itchy skin is formulated from high-quality raw materials without a paraben in sight. Our soap free dog shampoo is never created with anything that will cause irritation; just naturally moisturising ingredients that offer the utmost care for a doggie’s skin and their coat.

The Best Dog Shampoo for Itchy Skin

Let’s face it, we all know what it’s like to have an itch that needs scratching but having a constant irritation can be downright annoying and the more we scratch, the greater the chance of inflaming or even breaking the skin. We aim to stop the itching in its tracks, with a gentle shampoo that won’t irritate or inflame sensitive skins. Our formulations for both adult dogs and puppies have been perfected through testing and re-testing until we’re sure that they’ll give your dog the relief that they need without upsetting the pH balance of their skin.

However, don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at what our satisfied dogs and their humans have to say about how our sensitive dog shampoo cleans gently but thoroughly and how it leaves both the skin and coat fresh, healthy and comfortable.

As Fresh as an UWDOGS Dog

When you use Underwater Dogs Shampoo and dog conditioner for the first time, we’re sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the enticing aromas that accompany the lather. You’ll pick up accents of citrus fruits, vanilla, coconut and pineapple as you wash away the dirt and dust accumulated on their latest walk. Now, while we’re not quite sure what your doggie may think of their new scent, we’re sure you’ll prefer it to their usual dirty doggy odour.

To complement our range of doggie shampoos, we’ve created conditioners, detanglers, deodorisers and spray gloss too. They’re the perfect way to keep your dog’s coat and skin in tip-top condition while making them look as though they’ve just set paws out of your local doggy grooming salon. Just like our shampoos, every product in our canine haircare collection has been developed and manufactured to the same strict criteria and with the love and passion that comes from being doggy lovers who want the best for our doggies (and yours).

Itchy & Sensitive Skin in Dogs

Does your beloved pooch have sensitive skin? Sensitive skin and skin conditions among dogs is incredibly common. There are lots of genetic and environmental factors which can contribute to the condition of your dog’s skin. Diet allergies can be a key contributor with certain foods causing issues and sensitivity of a dog’s skin. Genetic sensitivities to common allergens such as dust, mites, grass or pollen can also lead to skin problems.

Environmental factors like seasonal weather changes, dryness and humidity, can affect a dog’s skin just as much as an adult. A dog’s skin can become quite dry and sensitive as a result of air conditioning and heating systems too.

Sensitive skin can prove quite uncomfortable for dogs – especially if they are subjected to products and foods which cause further flare ups and irritations. One of the most prevalent considerations for owners of dogs with sensitive skin or skin conditions should be ensuring to choose shampoo and conditioning products which are especially formulated to care for and protect your dog’s skin and coat.

Choosing a Dog Shampoo For Sensitive Skin

Just as you would choose products which cater especially for your skin type, the same considerations should come into play when choosing a dog shampoo. Bathing your dog to keep their coat clean and healthy is one of the most important elements of dog care. However, “any old shampoo” will not do. The choice shampoo you use to bathe your dog with is very important – but crucially so for dogs with sensitive skin.

Purchasing a specially formulated dog shampoo for sensitive, itchy skin will ensure the most comfortable bathing time for doggy. The best dog shampoo for itchy skin or sensitive skin will usually be marked and promoted as a “sensitive skin” product. However, to be sure of the best dog shampoo for sensitive skin, take heed of the following points to note:

  • Choose Paraben Free

A good sensitive dog shampoo should contain a paraben free formula. Parabens tends to aggravate a dog’s sensitive skin or skin condition, and also have similar effects on a human’s sensitive skin. This is particularly imperative to note if you, the dog owner, suffer from sensitive skin or skin conditions, as bathing your pet with a paraben containing formula may also irritate your skin.

  • Avoid Use of Soap

Dog shampoo doesn’t need to contain soap to effectively cleanse away dirt and allergens. In fact, dog shampoos containing soap can actually irritate a dog’s skin, especially the delicate skin of new puppies.

  • pH Balanced Formulas Are Important

The pH levels of dogs vary significantly from that of a human’s, so a human shampoo should never be used to bathe your pooch. The pH of dog’s skin is about 7.5 where a human’s skin is about 5.5, Look for a pH-balanced dog shampoo to minimise the risk of irritation to your dog’s skin.
