Make your own dog shampoo

So I have two huge standard poodles. The cost to groom them can be astronomical! I have decided to be budget conscious and do it myself.  When it comes to bathing soaps can be very expensive.Most human shampoos are not good for dogs skin or coats. With large dogs I can use a bottle of dog shampoo up in two or three baths. So I went on a search and found this shampoo recipe which is inexpensive and lasts a long time!
You will need!

  • An empty plastic container
  • 1 cup Ivory clear liquid dish soap
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup glycerine
Mix all ingredients together and shake. Your ready for a bath!

Why I use these ingredients;
Ivory soap is mild on the skin and fur and gets your pup squeeky clean
Apple cider vinegar is a deodorant
Glycerin is a moisturizer


Furry Paws Boutique has recently been featured in a few treasuries. Please have a look and enjoy!

Hot Trend

The fashion of skulls and cross bones no longer has to be just for Halloween. This season they are all the rage whether it be on clothing, jewelry or pet accessories.  Decorate your dog with these unique collars. Even cats can sport this new style. 


Welcome to Furry Paws Boutique blog! I am very excited to use this tool to discuss current pet issues and interact with fellow pet lovers. Currently I have two standard poodles and a 6 month old who keep me very busy. My dogs have inspired me to create my etsy shop . I create unique collars and leashes that cannot be found anywhere else. I was inspired to make this shop after finding it very difficult to get quality unique products for my dogs. I hope to share my creations with readers and explore the world of handmade products.

  As a kick off to my blog I am going to offer 10% off to all blogger's. Use coupon code Blog2011 exp March 31, 2011.
