20 Best Hypoallergenic Shampoos for Rottweiler’s with Itchy/Sensitive Skin
Oatmeal shampoo for dogs. Never use Dawn unless involves fleas or have been skunked.

Please talk to your vet. Shampoos specifically made for dogs should be the shampoo you use on your dog. Human skin has a normal pH balance of 5.5-5.6, which is on the acidic side. Dogs, on the other hand, have a normal pH balance of 6.2-7.4, which is more neutral. Using a human shampoo on dogs disrupts the acid mantle, leaving your dog vulnerable to parasites, viruses, and bacteria.
