These Scented Dog Shampoos Smell So Damn Good You’ll Want to Use Them Yourself

We think it’s safe to say that when it comes to lathering up your dog for a nose-to-toes shampooing, your furry pal probably doesn’t have much of an opinion about which scent is infused into the product. You, on the other hand, will not only be doing the suds’ing, but also the subsequent snuggling. So why not choose a scented dog shampoo that you’ll actually enjoy?

Most of us have a signature or favorite perfume and the specific notes of these scents (think: floral, tropical, sugary sweet, etc.) are an ideal place to begin your search for a gorgeously scented dog shampoo for your pooch—one that smells so damn good, we won’t blame you if you’re tempted to wash your own tresses with it.

Ready to give floof’s bath time some spa-like vibes? To help you narrow down your options, we’ve found several pet shampoos that fit into the most popular fragrance profiles. Simply sniff out your favorite to discover the dog shampoo that grooves on the same sort of scent.
