Paws & Pals Natural Dog Shampoo Review

When it comes to grooming and pampering their pets, there are quite no limits to how much pet parents are willing to spend in terms of both, time and energy. Product brands know this, and you'll often see that the most expensive pet products are also the ones with the most exotic natural ingredients.

Fortunately for pet owners who want to give their pet the best skincare possible, without spending a lot, there are products like Paws & Pals’ Natural Dog Shampoo, which pack in the goodness of several natural ingredients and bring a touch of nature to your pet's bath routine.

Paws & Pals Natural Dog Shampoo Bottle

With its carefully concocted formula that includes oatmeal, essential oils and vital nutrients like vitamin E, this shampoo provides you with a complete cleaning solution for your pet, in addition to also turning your pet’s bath into a relaxing, invigorating experience, just like they would have at a pet spa.

About The Product

Here’s a closer look at some of the features of this shampoo, which pet owners seem to be loving.

Natural Ingredients

This shampoo’s formula includes colloidal oatmeal, essential oil extracts like rosemary and chamomile, and is enriched with vitamin E. Together, these ingredients work their magic to replenish nutrients and moisture in your pet’s coat, making it shiny and soft for weeks between baths.

Calming Effect

Some pets can be particularly restless or frisky during and after a bath, particularly if they have anxiety of any kind. This can make bath time super stressful for both, your pet and you. Paws & Pals’ natural shampoo has chamomile extracts.

Chamomile, often used in night creams and teas is known to have a calming effect. If you want to turn your pet’s bath time into a relaxing experience for both of you, this product is highly recommended.

Plant-Based Additives

If you check the ingredient list on this bottle, you’ll find a few detergents and chemical substances listed there. But worry not, this product only uses plant-derived additives, which still allows it to maintain its natural properties.

While this is definitely a slight concern, you’ve got to feel reassured by the fact that none of these are synthetic or chemical-based, which means they are definitely not toxic for your pet’s skin.

What We Like

Here are some notable things that we like about this product:

Soft, Silky Coat

There’s no doubting the fact that the ingredients listed on this bottle are all super-effective when it comes to moisturizing and nourishing. There’s no surprise that pet owners who have regularly used this product seem to be loving the silky, soft feel of their pet’s fur and its lustrous, shiny coat.

Beagle Looking At Paws & Pals Natural Dog Shampoo

As a matter of fact, most pet owners said that this product is so effective at moisturizing that it even makes a conditioner seem unnecessary. Other than this one slightly confusing bit of information, there’s nothing else to not love about this dog shampoo from Pets & Pals.

Easy On The Pocket

At under $12, this shampoo is a value buy, particularly if you purchase your pet products in bulk. While most other shampoos with natural ingredients are priced much higher, this product brings you the same benefits for a much lesser price.


With colloidal oatmeal as its primary cleaning agent, there’s no doubt that this shampoo is absolutely gentle on your pet’s skin, and can be used for regular baths for even pets with sensitive skin. Unless your pet is undergoing a treatment for bacterial or fungal infections, or wounds, there’s no problem with using this shampoo.

Pleasant Scent

There’s nothing more annoying than having to cuddle a stinky, wet-smelling dog, but it’s equally annoying to bathe your pet and have them smell like perfume for days to come. With this shampoo from Paws & Pals, you’ll get a dog that doesn’t stink at all, smells fresh, but also doesn’t leave you feeling a little sick each time you cuddle with them.

What To Look Out For

Before you buy a shampoo for your dog, let's take a look on some things you should know:

Detergents And Additives

While it’s true that the detergents and additives used in this formula are plant-based, there’s still no denying the fact that they are a part of this shampoo. Yes, having naturally-derived cleansers makes this product a lot safer than chemical-laden ones, but it would still be a good idea to check with your vet, just to be safe.

Too Mild For Deep Cleansing

While there’s no doubting the fact that this product is absolutely perfect for regular use, to get rid of dust, dead skin and germs from your pet’s skin, you might want to opt for something just a little bit stronger if your dog is particularly dirty, or has been in a real mess.

Buying Advice

You might want to compare this product with others that use similar plant-derived additives, to get a better idea before you purchase it. As it is with any other pet grooming product, the best person to clear any confusions is your vet, so make sure to run the ingredients by them, checking for anything that could trigger an allergy or scratching.
