No matter what size or type of dog you have, giving them a bath is chore. From getting them to sit still to the lingering wet dog smell, there's nothing fun about it. However, there's one product that can help make freshening up your pup a whole lot easier. Burt's Bees Waterless Shampoo with Apple & Honey for Dogs only requires a few spritzes, a little massaging and a light towel off, and your dog is good to go.
Think of this as a dry shampoo, like the ones humans use for a freshen up in-between hair washing. And like human Burt's Bees products, this pet product uses a gentle formula that's 97 percent natural with no parabens, no sulfates and no chemicals you can't pronounce. It also won't wash off topical flea and tick treatment, so there's that!
According to the product description, it "contains apple extract to nourish and honey to give fur a super shine." However, it doesn't have a strong scent, so your dog won't smell like it was just sprayed with perfume.
Burt's Bee's suggests using the product for spot cleaning and muddy paws, but you can also use it for dogs who are scared of water or on dogs who maybe just had minor surgery and can't take a bath (of course, consult your vet first).
A reviewer on Walmart, who gave Burt's Bees waterless shampoo for dogs five stars, wrote that they, "use it on my two West Highland White terriers between baths to keep them soft and clean. We have not noticed any skin problems even with the one who is a little itchy at times. It's also good to use when the weather makes it not worth giving them a full bath."
You can find Burt's bees waterless shampoo with apple & honey for dogs in a 10-ounce bottle for $6.49 online at Walmart. Protip: If you spend over $35 on your Walmart order, you can get free 2-day shipping.
