You are obviously washing your dog too often, if you need a new bottle every
week, and removing oils from it's coat and body. Wash as seldom as possible.
For quick clean-ups use a little rubbing alcohol and a sponge.
Any mild shampoo that contains Lanolin e.g. would be fine.

Why do you have to buy a new bottle each week? How often are you
bathing your dog?

a dog should not get so many baths. brush him every day to remove dust and
dirt. once a month is more than enough. I use a cheap shampoo called
Suave, I use the "moisturizing" variety to avoid drying out his skin and
coat.

Are my dogs dirty????? My dos get bathed once or twice a year unless they
roll in something nasty! When we go out we will often take them to the beach
or a small river / stream where they happily swim and play in. Do people
think it's necessary to bath there dogs more often?? My dogs don't smell at
all and their coats are lovely.

Here in Australia there's a very mild household soap called Velvet, which
the vet says is quite suitable for dogs. It's cheap.

But I do agree with the others that dogs should not be bathed too often.

Bathing is fine for dogs ...its not the bathing that drys them out always
but lack of proper nutrition....Dawn dishwashing detergent is the best dog
shampoo out there for dogs affordable and easily rinsed as that is the most
important thing....There are times my dogs are in the lake, ocean, river on
a daily basis and i wash them after there swimming adventures and never get
dried skin syndrome...maybe the choice of food would help alot of
you...there are allergies of the skin that do horrible things and ive seen
it happen with the so called dog shampoos but not dawn soap.....joker

Bathing a dog with dry skin too frequently can indeed cause dryer
skin. It could be that the reason your dogs don't get dry skin is
because they are breeds or breed combinations with more oil in their
coats to begin with.

I only bath Roxy before a show or after she has rolled in something gross
(she is her happiest when something is particularly disgusting, flat on her
back with her legs straight up in the air and wiggling as she grinds her
back into it good). I use 1 bottle beer + 1 raw egg (beaten and added to
the beer). Her coat is silky after this. She has an extremely short coat,
so you may need more than 1 bottle. She does not smell like beer when
finished. It takes two washings to get rid of the really disgusting smells.

Tell me more about the beer and egg. Is this for regular pre-show wash?

Or
is it only saved for "special" odors?

I use this for all washes. I haven't washed her very many times, but the
last 4 or 5 washes I have used the beer and egg mixture and love it! And
Roxy likes to lick it off too!
