Hi, I'm Jenn Fadal, founder of The Pack Mom, and this is how to make a moisturizing dog shampoo. So there are many good reasons to make your own moisturizing dog shampoo at your house. You will save money probably first and foremost, you can save the environment, and you will know exactly what ingredients are going into your dog shampoo. So if you have an itchy scratchy dog, this might just be a life saver. When you make your own shampoo you need to keep in mind your dog's skin pH. A normal dog's skin pH is anywhere between 6 and 8.5 and today the shampoo we're going to make falls in the range of about 7 to 8. So it's kind of in that middle range. So let's get started. We're going to start with 4 cups of hot water, one, two, three, four, 1 cup of vinegar, I'm choosing apple cider vinegar, that has a lot of good elements for a dogs coat, so 1 cup of vinegar. 3 tablespoons of unscented liquid Castile soap, this is our base. So we've got some acidity, we've got some alkalinity, making that pH where we want it. Now we're going to add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. You need some kind of fatty acid or a butter to really get into that hair shaft and moisturize your dog's coat, and I'm going to add a couple of drops of lavender oil, this will not only calm my dog, but it helps with itching, scratching, and will make him smell delicious. And now I've chosen to have a spray bottle for my dog shampoo, so I'm going to put a funnel on top and pour my homemade moisturizing dog shampoo right inside. Alright, so now we have it. One homemade moisturizing dog shampoo complete. I just need to grab Abe and Chico, and throw them in the tub. I'm Jenn Fadal, thanks for watching, and that's how you make homemade moisturizing dog shampoo.
