Review: Dog Tails Dog Shampoo + Microfiber Pet Towel

Ever since I started bathing Soda at home, I’ve wanted three things out of a dog shampoo:

1. For the shampoo (and therefore my dog after a bath) to smell great.
2. For the dog shampoo to be gentle on my pup’s skin, and filled with natural ingredients.
3. For the shampoo to lather up quickly and rinse easily to make bathtime quick and easy.

I’m happy to say after reviewing the new Dogtails Clarifying Shampoo, this fab new brand ticks all three boxes. And the microfiber towel! There’s going to be lots of raving about this little lifesaver. The Towel Appreciation Society* would be going nuts over this guy.

* If the Towel Appreciation Society actually existed.


Want the details? Formulated specifically for a dog’s PH balance and sensitive skin, Dogtails Clarifying Shampoo is a one step system that allows you to bathe your dog with no fuss.


Simply squeeze a small amount into your palm, lather in your hands and massage in to your wet dog’s fur. Then simply rinse off – it’s that simple. When I used it, the shampoo left no residue, lathered up straight away and rinsed out quickly. Win.


Loaded with essential oils, I found the Dogtails dog shampoo to have a fresh, floral scent – with hints of Rosemary, Grapefruit and Lime lingering on Soda’s fur for days after the wash. Whoever said a dog can’t smell divine hasn’t used Dogtails shampoo! The scent was light and pleasant as well – no “who just sprayed themselves with Old Spice and over powered the whole room” situation going on. The shampoo also contains aloe vera to soothe sensitive skins. For the full ingredient list visit here.


My ultimate praise would have to fall with the Dogtails plush microfiber soft towel. It says it’s plush, but that word doesn’t even cover the softness you feel – this towel is what I imagine would happen if clouds and baby pandas were combined. Before we used it, I was seriously considering keep the towel for myself. Bad fur-parent. I blame the brainwashing ways of the Towel Appreciation Society*. But alas, Soda got the towel after enduring her bath. And boy did it earn its keep.


Not only is it gentle enough to use on even the most sensitive dogs, the Dogtails plush towel completely dries off your dog in record time. The microfiber material soaks up 7 times more water than a regular towel.

Dogtails claim the towel cuts your drying time in half, and after using it, I would fully support it. I’ve never dried off Soda more quickly. Within minutes she was 80% dry and before too long she was fluffier, cleaner and drier than ever.

With the combination of the easy, simple and natural shampoo plus the speed drying, super soft towel, Dogtails makes for very easy at home grooming – even for first timers.


  • Pure natural ingredients for sensitive dogs. No harsh chemicals.
  • Use of Aloe Vera Gel, Rosemary Oil and Lime Oil soothes and nourishes your dogs skin and coat, while smelling fantastic.
  • Clarifying Shampoo is filled in recyclable PET bottles and can be reused again.
  • Not tested on animals and earth friendly.
  • Microfiber towel cuts your drying time in half – keeping your dog dry and warm after bathtime.
  • Super soft, hypoallergenic towel retains its softness after washing.
  • For every purchase of Dogtails Dog Shampoo a soft blanket is dropped off at a local animal shelter for dogs in need of warmth & comfort.


  • Dogs with sensitive skin.
  • Dogs with thick coats that take a lengthy time to dry.
  • Environmentally conscious dog owners.

    Addison’s coat takes forever to dry so I will be looking into this.

    Kerry – Yes, the shelter pledge is so thoughtful!

    Ooh, this looks awesome!! My dogs hate hair dryers, so I usually go through way too many towels trying to get them dried off. Thanks for sharing!
