Catch Dog. Shake bottle to blend ingredients. Wet your 4-Legger with warm water from head to the end of their tail. Apply 4-Legger to the palm of your hand and apply to your pet.
While the consistency is thin, you will find that you need only a small amount to cover your dog and that it lathers quite well! To increase suds, use more water - not shampoo.
Gently massage 4-Legger deep into your pet's coat. Rinse thoroughly until water runs clear.
A few tips if you are new to organic dog shampoo:
Your dog will likely go through a perfectly normal transition period. Don't worry - we've documented what you can expect - click here to read! To increase the lather, use more water - not shampoo.Consider adding one of our foamer bottles to your order! It will help you manage the thin consistency by infusing air into the shampoo, as well as keep you from using more than is needed to wash your dog.
Note: Use care around your pet's eyes. To wash your pet's face - use a wash cloth.

Our vet recommended this to help with our puppy’s itchy paws, legs & underbelly when he lays in the grasses & Ivy beds. He coat is beautiful after using just a bit of this. It seems to help the itchiness. Sometimes we use a tiny amount in a tub of water to wash off just his paws too. Such a great product.
I have two chihuahuas and one of them is extremely allergic and has very sensitive skin. I tried many shampoos looking for one that would be non-irritating and keep his sensitive skin moisturized to prevent his endless scratching of himself. I’ve tried so many different shampoos. Finally, I decided to give it a try to 4-Legger’s Soothe shampoos just because based on ingredient list it sounded super mild and even moisturizing. I’ll be honest that I purchased Soothe shampoo but I did not purchase the foamer bottle. Hmm...my experience wasn’t good without the foamer as basically the shampoo did not foam at all. So I ended up using to so of product and that wasn’t good. 4-Legger customer support was supper helpful and empathetic to someone like me who wasn’t used to using organic shampoos. Since I got the foamer bottle it changed it all as now the shampoo foams very well, making it super easy and pleasant to wash my pups. And my sensitive, allergic pup seems to be scratching much, much less. Thank you for creating such an awesome product and thank you Melissa for your superb customer support. And for all the first-timers who never used organic shampoos from 4-Legger. In my humble opinion, you actually need the foamer bottle to be able to wash your pup with ease. Using the shampoo straight from the bottle isn’t the easiest way to wash your pup. Also besides the foamer bottle with Soothe shampoo in it being super easy to foam up my pups and wash them...also rinsing the shampoo is super easy. It doesn’t leave any ‘film’ on my pups coat, it’s easy to rinse, their fur is soft and shiny, and since it’s fragrance-free product I love how my pups simply smell ‘clean’ and ‘natural’. I most importantly appreciate that my pups seem to be much less itchy. I hope that with using Soothe shampoo on regular basis my pups will stop scratching themselves all together. There’s hope for sensitive, allergic, itchy pups! Thank you 4-Legger!
If your looking for organic with all safe ingredients then you should buy this one. It’s gentle on a dogs skin and make my puppies jet black hair shine so much! Great product so I will stick with it.
We love this stuff! We adopted a senior Portuguese Water Dog and a Black Mouth Cur and this works great for both of them! Love that we can use more frequently when they're in mud without it irritating the doggies. Rinses out well without a soapy residue. Thank you for such a great product.
I used this shampoo on my dog after he had what was basically a chemical burn on his body from another supposed hypoallergenic shampoo on the market (which, he had been bathed with last year with 0 issues.) That shampoo caused his body to become red and inflamed, blister, scabby, and peel, and he was incessantly itchy.
After bathing in the 4Legger Shampoo, he was immediately less itchy, and just a day later, his skin was no longer red and inflamed. Just a couple of days later, and his skin was 95% better.
This shampoo lathers nicely and easily and washes out even easier, which I appreciate since the rinsing is the part most dogs hate the most.
I will only be purchasing and recommending this shampoo from now on. Thank you for helping my dog!
