Pamper Your Pup: Four Editor-Approved Picks featured image

While your best pet friend always had access to luxury grooming, now the industry finally has a new twist: Skin care brands offering beauty products—from shampoo and conditioner to deodorizes and spritzes—just for dogs. We rounded up our favorites and think each pick has something unique to bring to the tub.


1. Malin+Goetz Dog Shampoo, $28

The dog and human friendly formula is safe for both you and your pet because of the shampoo’s pH level. “Dog skin has a pH level from 5.5 to 7.5, unlike human skin, which is 5.2. to 6.2,” explains Andrew Goetz, co-founder of Malin+Goetz. Ultimately, the 5.8 pH overlap caters to both skin types.

Why It’s Unique:

Gentle enough for sensitive skin, this product contains the essential oil, neroli. This ingredient’s apothecary fragrance is known to help relax the senses of both humans and canines. The added bonus? Neroli keeps your dog’s coat healthy by enhancing its shine and protecting it from fleas.


2. Kiehl’s Spray-N-Play Cleansing Spritz, $13

The 163-year-old brand offers three products for your dog: Cuddly-Coat Grooming Shampoo, Cuddly-Coat Conditioning Rinse and Spray-N-Play Cleansing Spritz. All formulated with chamomile flower extract, this ingredient helps calm excitable dogs and protects against unwanted parasites.

Why It’s Unique:

Similar to dry shampoo, Spray-N-Play Cleansing Spritz requires no water. This bathe-anytime product only calls for three steps: Spray, lather and wipe your pup down. The product contains the emollient lanolin to help moisturize your dog’s skin. If playtime leaves your dog’s coat with a stain, this product can be used to deodorize and spot clean as well.  


3. Key West Aloe Really Good Doggie Deodorizer, Starting at $5

Key West Aloe has put together a line of 100% pure aloe-based products to help soothe your dog’s rashes, hot spots and irritations.

Why It’s Unique:

This product keeps your furry friend smelling fresh along with everything else that may be doggie-scented. The spray can be used to deodorize furniture, beds or other areas from your dog’s potent scent without leaving behind any stains or residue. 


4. Supersmile Petsmile Professional Pet Toothpaste, $25

From the brand that brought you top tier products for your teeth comes the same quality for your dog’s pearly whites. The product helps maintain healthier teeth and gums, while eliminating “doggie breath.”

Why It’s Unique:

The only dental care toothpaste approved by the Veterinarian Oral Health Council, Petsmile both whitens and cleans your pooch’s choppers. The beef flavored toothpaste uses Calprox—the same ingredient found in the products created for humans by Supersmile—which works to remove bacteria, plaque and stains that attach to the protein pellicle (a thin protein layer that forms on the surface of teeth).
