Today we are gonna talk about DIY dog conditioner recipes. To be exact, you’ll find some DIY dog shampoo recipes.
Dog Conditioner Recipes
So, the first one is pretty simple: it’s just three eggs. Eggs are great for a dog’s skin and coat. They help to nourish and moisturize, both the skin and the coat. So. you’re going to do:
- three eggs,
- two cups of warm water.
Just mix those around in a bowl with a whisk and then apply it to your dog’s coat. Work it all through and let it sit for at least 10 minutes if you can now. Obviously, if your dog isn’t the greatest in the bathtub, you might not be able to wait 10 minutes, but if you can just let him, hang out, let it sit in there for 10 minutes and rinse it out um.
If you don’t want to rinse it out, you can do a leave-in conditioner, and for that I use:
- one quart of water,
- two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar,
Apple cider vinegar helps to balance the skin’s ph level, and so you can spray that on your dog’s coat. Work it down through and leave that in. The only drawback to that one is you get the smell of the vinegar a little bit but where it’s so diluted in the water, it’s not that bad. So I like that for a leave-in conditioner and then, if your dog’s really got some skin and coke problems.
If it’s wintertime and you’re noticing like dry flaky skin, that’s really bothering your pup really great, very nourishing conditioner recipe for this one. I’m going to go through it kind of quickly. This one is really thicker, more like hard-working conditioner for dogs with a really dry skin and coat.
So, you’ll start with:
- two tablespoons of coconut oil,
- two tablespoons of honey,
- a quarter cup of ground oats.
So, you’re going to take oats and just use them like in a food. Processor grind them up into a powder. So, it’s a quarter cup of the oats and two tablespoons of honey and then last is just a quarter cup of water. So, you can mix all that together in a bowl again, whisk that all up you might want to melt the coconut oil a little bit just to make it easier to mix and same thing just apply to your dog’s coat, really work it in there.
Let it sit for at least 10 minutes if you can and then give it a good rinse. And if you do that, you know once a week or so for a month, you should notice a huge difference in your dog’s coat and you won’t need to do it very often at all. But I like to use that one in the winter time, when the air is really dry and has a real negative effect on my dog’s skin.
So, those are my recipes again.
