    34 Things To Help Keep Your Dog Happy In 2020

    Happy fur ball, happy life.

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Waterproof dog shoes to protect your pupper's paws from salt, ice, and snow that can hurt their feet and cause irritation and bleeding. These shoes expand because of a split seam opening to fit their specific paw size, and the two adjustable and reflective velcro straps ensure a tight fit.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was so skeptical that my dog would actually wear these, but I put them on and immediately took him out to play fetch. Once he realized that he could run and jump with them on, he was sold. It snowed a few days later and we put them on again and ended up walking six miles without any sore or red spots on his feet after. I did make it a point to not laugh at him and only put them on for fun stuff. He’s getting to the point where he knows they mean fun and will even give me his paws so I can put them on. You have to make sure that you tighten them enough, but once they are on, they should stay. I will be ordering another pair if these get run through." —emiliey

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in six sizes, two colors, and two styles).

    2. An adorable personalized bandana that they can wear on a walk so everyone passing by knows their name and can stop to give the appropriate pets. It's made from a super soft material with an adjustable collar so it can grow with them.

    amazon.com

    Before adding to cart, you can personalize the bandana to your liking, and can even pick thread color!

    Promising review: "Love these! They look great on the dogs, so soft. I haven't washed them yet but they look very durable. I bought two, one for my dog and one for my son's dog. I would love to buy these in every color for them!" —Cindy L Jones

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four colors and four sizes).

    3. A humidifier, because cold, dry winter air can cause a few different problems for your pooch. Keeping the air moist means they'll have an easier time breathing during the cold winter months, plus it can aid in keeping their snout smooth and fur soft.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My poor old dog has developed breathing problems and when the polar vortex sucked all the moisture out of the air, her cough got really bad. This has definitely helped her breathe easier during these dry times. As for the humidifier itself, it's super quiet, easy to use, and also works as a great night light!" —K. Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    4. A lightweight insulated dog vest that is uber warm and ideal for morning and afternoon walks because of the sewn-on silver D-ring. You'll be able to quickly attach their leash to it while heading out the door. Plus, it's cut in a way that'll prevent a mess when ~duty~ calls.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This jacket is truly awesome. It is felt-lined and well insulated. When I slide my hand underneath while he's wearing it I can feel how toasty it is. The top zipper is ingenious. It keeps my pup's chest warm. I can actually see that he loves it. He doesn't stand around awkwardly like he does with every other jacket and wait for me to take it off when we walk in the door. He's happy to go trotting into the house with the jacket on. He loves to sleep in it." —Bianca F.S.

    Get it from Amazon for $31.05 (available in sizes XS–XL and 12 colors).

    5. Or a reversible dog coat with an inner fleece lining and a water-resistant side for those rainy days when they still wanna go outside, but you definitely don't. Time to throw on that rain jacket so your pupper can do their business.

    amazon.com, amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! I ordered two for my Scotties (above) and the size large fits them perfectly. It is also well made; the fabric is thick. I like that they have a Velcro at the bottom since my other dog is wide and my other one is slimmer, so you could make this a loose or snug fit with the Velcro attachment." —karen

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes XXS–4XL and eight styles).

    6. A portable paw washer so you can clean their paws after being outside in the mud. The inside bristles are super soft, so no, they won't howl during the cleaning process. It's also transportable so you can bring to a friend's house after a doggo playdate.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Honestly so happy I bought this. My husband would get frustrated trying to clean the dogs' paws off when the yard gets muddy and I would end up cleaning mud off of our furniture. This is so much easier and even our finicky dogs allow us to use it with virtually no struggle. Easy to empty and refill, feels sturdy." —Jessica A Suggs

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three sizes and three colors).

    7. A cozy burrow bed that'll provide them with the perfect snuggle place so they won't shed all over your expensive couch. The super soft lambswool will be cozy against their fur, plus the orthopedic foam base will distribute their weight evenly and take pressure off their hips and joints.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This bed is amazing. I have had it for about three months now, and it is by far my dog's favorite thing to lay in (including furniture). She’ll even pass up the opportunity to sleep in my bed 80% of the time so she can sleep in her burrow bed. The inside is very soft and keeps her warm. She doesn’t have a thick coat and I keep the apartment cold at night so that was important for me. The plastic tubing is pretty cheap but she likes it better without it so that wasn’t a concern. So far, the bed has held up well but she also doesn’t chew up her beds. Even if I have to buy this bed again in six months, it is still the best money I’ve spent on my dog and she’s pretty spoiled. I would highly recommend." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in four sizes, four styles, and 10 colors).

    8. A dog house heater to keep your pooch warm if they spend a majority of their time outside. It features a heat shield to protect them from all wires and no sharp edges.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Purchased this after researching something that would keep my one outside farm dog warm in the winter since she has been diagnosed with Addison's Disease and has trouble regulating her temperature in extreme heat/cold. We built an insulated dog house inside the old drafty barn and purchased this heater. With this heater turned on medium it keeps it about 50 degrees inside when it was -20 with the wind chill outside. After putting this in and getting my dog to sleep in it, she came out the next morning and did a big ol' stretch. I'd say she is sleeping quite comfortably with it." —Nancy

    Get it from Amazon for $129.95+ (originally $189.95).

    9. An allergy supplement for dogs that suffer from allergies, itching, and digestive issues. Each bite contains vitamins, protein, fiber, and antioxidants to support natural immune defenses to help keep your lil' fur ball healthy.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Nothing is quite as annoying as your dog's incessantly biting, chewing, and scratching themselves at 2 a.m. 🤬We used flea treatments, baths, all the normal stuff, etc. so I had NO idea what was up. We had a vet checkup and they were fine, no health issues. So after some light research, I decided to try something like this. This is my third jar and it seems to be the miracle cure for the heat running, dry air, no moisture winter. The scratching is back to normal dog levels 😉 and I am finally sleeping again!!! Plus their coats are really shiny! Definitely going to keep buying!" —Fancy77

    Get them from Amazon for $25.97 (available in two flavors and two sizes).

    10. An absorbent microfiber dog towel, because bath time should be an enjoyable time for all parties involved. This will feel amazing on their fur, dry them off as quickly as possible, and avoid getting that wet dog smell you kinda loathe (even though you love your fur baby).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I use it almost daily when we come in from a snow walk to get the damp off his fur; he's a tunneler and gets covered in snow. For just snow it only takes a few seconds to dry him off. We had a downpour the other day, (Yes! In the middle of winter! Crazy weather!) and he was soaked. This Super Shammy had him dry in minutes! Simply amazing! It dries quickly, doesn't drip while drying, and can be washed in the washing machine. Can you tell I really love this product?" —LoveToShop

    Get it from Amazon for $19.89+ (available in four colors).

    11. And a non-skid microfiber doggy doormat that'll dry your pet's paws faster than regular mats. You're way too tired of seeing dirty paw prints on your kitchen floor and this mat will solve that issue. It also features a no-skid backing so they don't go flying when they run through the back door.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dog mat has changed my life! It was recommended by a family member who swore it was absolutely amazing at soaking up the dirt and moisture from their dog's feet in a mere 15 seconds. The first time it rained/snowed I was sold on this mat. We have two dogs with very hairy paws and they soak up the wet. We had them stand on the rug for 15 seconds, easy to do on leashes, and then let them go. Not a single wet spot on the laminate floors! The rug soaked it all up including the dirt! It works great for our shoes as well. The rug also traps anything we might track in such as the rock salt used to melt ice. To clean we just shake it out outside and then machine wash/hang dry every few weeks or so. I don't dread wet weather anymore! Seriously, this runner is a miracle!" —Tiffany Chiles

    Get it from Amazon for $23.04+ (available in four sizes and 13 colors).

    12. A trimmer for furry paws so you can safely shave them and save some money on a trip to the groomer. It's designed to omit a low noise as to not startle your pup, plus the blade can be removed to clean after use.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have two long-haired dogs and the hair between their pads get so long and matted sometimes that they will start limping. This solved that problem. These clippers are great for getting into the small spaces between their toe pads and the guard ensures I don’t accidentally cut them. The packing was great, shipping was quick, and the directions were simple. It even comes with a brush to clean the razor." —Kelsey B.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    13. Bissell Stomp N' Go stain lifting pads to treat your pet's next indoor accident immediately (and effectively). It's great for wine, blood, and coffee, too, plus it doesn't require you using your hands! All you've gotta do is lay the pad down, stomp with your foot a few times, and remove.

    amazon.com

    The cleaning formula is released when you stomp, so there's no added spray involved! Everything you need is on the pad already.

    Promising review: "I never ever write reviews for anything, but I just had to write one for these. We have two dogs and one of them will get sick or have an accident in the house a few times a month. I've used all kinds of carpet cleaner as well as the SpotBot, but they never seemed to really get the stains out. I bought these on a whim because I was desperate to find something that might work and guess what? THEY WORKED! No joke, every stain I have put these on has come out of the carpet. I have told everyone I know about these and have heard great things from them as well. If you are on the fence, just give them a try!" —Angela Mimm

    Get 20 pads from Amazon for $24.99+.

    14. Pet potty training pads, because teaching a child to use the potty is hard enough. These pads will help save your carpets while your furry friend slowly learns that their potty is outside.

    amazon.com

    When we first got my dog (shoutout to Bailey), he was a young pup and thought the floor was his bathroom. These pads helped his training process and gave him a spot to go inside the house if we didn't get him outside in time. They're large, so they cover a good amount of space. They're absorbent, easy to dispose of, and a great tool for homeowners looking to keep their carpets intact.

    Promising review: "I will be buying these again. I've tried a number of puppy pads since I have a small toy dog and am pleased to report that these do a good job of absorbing urine and are affordably priced. They are not the thickest pad I have bought but they do not leak. More important than thickness to me is how the pad curbs the flow of urine. Some pads are thicker pads but the urine spreads out too much and it will reach my dog's paws before she is done. These pads inhibit the spreading better which for me is a big plus." —Buffy

    Get them from Amazon for $14.49+ (available in two sizes, in heavy-duty options, and in packs).

    15. An Aquapaw licking pad that'll suction to your shower wall and provide some much-needed distraction while you *attempt* to give your pooch a bath. You can load it up with peanut butter or whatever other treat your pet loves.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Tried this with our lab puppy when I needed to sweep and vacuum the floors. This kept her busy for a while so I could clean in peace! I filled it with peanut butter and placed it on the refrigerator door. She loves it! Also used this when we had company to keep her busy so she wouldn't be such a pest." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    16. A grooming glove to remove excess hair from your beloved pupper by mimicking petting (which can also calm nerves and keep fidgeting to a minimum). Regularly brushing your pooch's coat can increase shine and softness + the glove is effective on all types of coats and hair lengths.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Fantastic dog grooming aid! Our older rescue dog isn't too keen on the routine dog brushing stuff but her thick coat really needs the grooming — this dog grooming glove is the exactly right answer. Put the glove on, pet the dog, and all that loose hair comes away leaving her coat feeling so much smoother and softer without causing her to be nervous or upset over a brushing. Highly recommend, and yes I'm going to be ordering as gifts for a couple of other dog owners I know!" —DSP

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available for left and right handed people).

    17. A pack of paw protection cream made with vitamin E to keep paw pads soft and silky. It can protect them from hot pavement, ice, and salt.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I don't write many reviews, but I want to send a cyber hug to the creators of Musher's Secret. This has been a very long, harsh winter in my part of the world. That fact does not deter my labradoodle from wanting to play fetch everyday. I felt like the worst fur parent ever as I would watch the snow become dotted with blood from his cracked paws. I would inspect his feet, and he would have parts of his pads scraped off and deep divots. My pup didn't mind because of his intense love for fetch, but I was having extreme guilt and shame for letting him experience even an ounce of pain. First, I tried paw wax...total crap. All of my friends suggested trying Musher's Secret. I bought it and started applying it every night right before bedtime and have been doing that routine for about a month now. So far three of his paws have completely healed and one paw is still making vast improvements. Pups feet are happy and I am happy! CYBER HUG!!!" —Erikabee1989

    Get a pack from Amazon for $12.75+ (available in a pack of two).

    18. A snout soother that'll keep their very boopable noses soft and smooth. It can soothe and heal dry, cracked noses because of its grape seed oil, hempseed oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E ingredients.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Well, I have never before been so shocked at the effectiveness of a product. Our five-year-old Frenchie, Carol, had a nose that was so crusty it was sprouting these long strands of more crust. There was literally crust on crust on crust. The nose had strings of crust. This nose was so crusty and repulsive it was almost beautiful. Her nose might have resembled the rarest, most exotic geode to be mined from the rarest mine in Guatemala. A friend recommended Snout Soother for Carol's repulsive nose. I was worried she would just lick it all off and it wouldn't work. We never imagined she could have a regular, soft, moist nose again. Honestly this product is some black magic stuff! Unbelievable results in three to five days. No one paid me to write this." —Brittany

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    19. And! A moisturizing sun protection balm to shield their noses from harmful UV rays. Think about it — you wear sunscreen when you sit in the sun, why shouldn't your furry friend? It's waterproof, too, so it'll provide full coverage even when you bring 'em to the beach or they take a dip in the pool.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is perfect. He is extremely pink, especially in his face, so I apply this around his eyes (it doesn't run so no worries) and on his nose. If we are outside all day, like at the lake or beach, I reapply about two to three times throughout the day. Ever since I bought this product, he hasn't had any sunburn or peeling, which makes me a very thankful momma! The container is a little small, but surprisingly a little goes a long way!" —Kelly Oehler

    Get it from Amazon for $12.94.

    20. A personalized dog collar so you can avoid a lost puppito. Since their name and your telephone number is stitched into the band, you won't have to worry about the ID tag falling off.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    You can also buy a reflective version so you can see your doggo in the dark. Before you add the collar to your cart, you'll be asked to customize!

    Promising review: "Love this. Perfect, since my dog rolled around in the snow and his tags somehow disappeared. This is much safer than a tag. I've had people stop me and ask me where I got it. Don't hesitate!" —Allison

    Get them from Amazon for $18.95 (available in sizes XS–L and five colors).

    21. An interactive dog toy for the doggo who needs to be stimulated when you just wanna watch some TV and chill. You can hide the smaller toys within the larger one so it creates a puzzle for your pet. It's a great tool for boredom – especially when boredom leads to chewing your shoes.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My son's yorkie-poo stays at my place a lot. He is obsessed with squirrels now, so we thought this would be a fun Christmas toy for him. We followed the advice of other reviewers and supervised to try to delay the death of all the squirrels. We let him play with the tree trunk after he had rooted out all the squirrels and tried to kill them, as a dog will do. He loves the tree trunk — so much so that he makes love to it every time we let him play with it. He is nearly five years old, and was neutered as a pup, and never was much for humping, but he goes after that tree trunk like a prisoner on a conjugal visit every time we set it out for him to play with. If we have guests, it's a floor show. He doesn't care. I'm not quite sure what to make of all this, but as long as it makes him happy." —PBH

    Get it from Amazon for $10.39+ (available in three sizes and five styles).

    22. A squeaky toy with no filling so you can play tug of war all day without fear of stuffing flying everywhere. Your pooch will be able to gnaw and gnaw to their heart's content.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm very pleased with these dog toys. The description perfectly matched what arrived in the mail. My doggy loves them. Her mission in life is to destroy anything with a squeak and fill the house with toy stuffing, but that's not possible with these toys. No stuffing is brilliant. I also appreciate how strong the seaming is on these toys because she has not yet been able to rip them. The toys have multiple squeaks which drives her crazy with excitement! And the squeaks aren't too terrible to listen to." —R E Vio

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49+ (available in three sizes).

    23. A joint supplement made with glucosamine to keep their joints cushioned and lubricated for full range of motion and flexibility. You want them to stay active and pain-free, and this soft chewable just might help keep them in tip-top shape.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My very picky dogs come running when they smell their Glyco-Flex chews! They scarf them down in a flash. Now, even when it is cold and/or damp, they jump right up from sleeping with no apparent stiffness/soreness!" —Pamela Dalton

    Get it from Amazon for $38.

    24. An anti-fungal antibacterial spray made with soothing aloe to help treat a range of skin conditions including allergies, cuts, hot spots, infections, rashes, and scrapes. It's a sensitive skin formula, meaning it won't sting them, either.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My Frenchie chews on his paws night and day. I’ve tried raw diets, but it was not a food allergy. My dog just produces too much yeast in his paws and tail pocket that he just can’t help it but gnaw in this paws for hours on and scooting his butt to get that itch in that tail pocket. I’ve tried foot soaks, balms, and so many other products, wasting so much money. This is the first product that worked! The smell is very pleasant and easy application; be careful don’t let your dog ingest it. I love this product and won’t be using any other product. Since I’ve been using it, his paws are starting to look normal and not all red/raw and chewed up. I would recommend this to any animal owner to use this if the pets have skin issues." —Uyen Mai Thi Tran

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    25. An antibacterial toothpaste, because you don't want your furry pupper to have bad breath or plaque buildup. It's safe for them to swallow, contains no foaming agents, and comes in a flavor they won't wanna spit up all over you.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I write this for Pabu, a Shih Tzu. The vanilla mint flavor disappeared for a long time and Pabu would refuse all other flavors. This arrived yesterday and he went right for the first link. Happy breath and dental care again. Woo-hoo!" —Mikah

    Get it from Amazon for $9.25+ (also available in a pack of two).

    26. Or a liquid tartar remover for dogs who definitely won't stand still for a thorough teeth brushing. It can be added directly to their water and acts like a mouthwash. It'll reduce plaque and that nasty bacteria that causes bad doggy breath.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dog's molars were turning black and he had a ton of build up on his canines. In the photo (above), just imagine everywhere you see slight yellow, instead covered in black and brown gunk and hard plaque. His gums were beginning to look inflamed. And, of course, his breath could kill a horse. After one week of constant use (a cap full for every bowl of water) you could see an obvious difference in tooth color. I was blown away. (Why can’t human mouthwash do such a good job on our teeth?) After three weeks, his molars were almost completely clean. After a couple months of use, the plaque on his canines was soft enough to brush some of it off, which was totally impossible before. Plaque covered the canine approximately 70%. Obviously that's no longer the case. Idk what insane solvent this is made of, but it keeps his gross mouth clean as a whistle. Now I don’t have to worry about my picky princess mutt losing his teeth because he can’t be bothered to chew anything." —BaconPancakes

    Get it from Amazon for $5.84+ (available in two sizes and three flavors).

    27. And! Oral hygiene chews to help reduce plaque and tartar. The poultry flavor means your fluffy pup will think these are a treat, AKA they'll literally love them. The chewing action will help clean their teeth in the process.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We have small dogs with dental issues. After a second cleaning, vet recommended trying these chews. Results amazing! Reduced existing tartar. Clean teeth for two years now. A little pricey, but you avoid vet cost and risk of sedating pet. Sometimes the chews are too hard for our chihuahuas, so I place in a wet paper towel and microwave for 20 seconds. Let cool and they are good to go." —M. Thomas

    Get them from Amazon for $11.72+ (available in four sizes).

    28. An ear treatment that'll clean your pooch's ears and rid them of irritation, debris, and any other buildup that may cause inflammation. You can apply it directly into their ear canal and massage it around so it settles.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dog has had chronic ear infections for years now. Every other month or so she’d get an infection and $200 later we’d have meds from the vet who confirmed what we already knew. I finally decided to give an unprescribed treatment a try and it worked AMAZINGLY. Followed the instructions for a week, and her ear is completely healed! Much easier to pay $20 as opposed to $200 when you get the same results! I highly recommend." —Fromal16

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in two sizes).

    29. A nail grinder, because getting ripped apart by your pupper's nails when you're trying to snuggle is...not ideal. This grinder features two speeds so you can carefully trim their nails without hurting them. It's also pretty quiet so they won't be spooked by any alarming sounds.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My older dog (15) has been suffering with long nails for some time. It's affected her ability to walk, and she's always falling. I've taken her to the groomer, tried to clip them myself, taken her walking and none of that helped. I even took her to the vet and had them put her under anesthesia to clip her nails. That didn't do much at all and they recommended I not do that often because of her age. So I got this and hoped for the best. I am beyond impressed and thankful! In one session this has made a huge difference. My dog didn't move or jerk around like she normally does. She just laid there and let me take care of her nails. I could not believe it When we were done and she got up to walk, I could no longer hear the loud tapping on the floors. She is gonna have to get used to walking normally again." —georgiadiva2k

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (comes with five sanding bands and a charger).

    30. An eye rinse that'll reduce irritation and eliminate tear stains (AKA, those streaks that some puppies get below their eyes). The rinse will gently cleanse the eye and surrounding tissue, removing debris, pollutants, and pollen that could be causing allergies.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have two Shih Tzus. They had watery eyes and a little tear staining, but this eye solution has worked wonderfully. One drop in their eyes every morning after I’ve cleaned them. At one point I stopped doing it for awhile, and my male ended up with a stye, so back to every day." —CG

    Get it from Amazon for $3.73.

    31. And mini combs to detangle matted fur around their eyes that may contain eye boogies, crusty stuff (ewwie), and some dried mucus. The stainless steel comb will pick through their hair gently and effectively.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My cockapoo had tear staining as a pup but as an adult he just gets that goop in the corner of his inner eyes. Sometimes I don’t catch the goop fast enough and it hardens in his muzzle. Even when I do, the goop is slimy and difficult to remove even with dog wipes. This tool is a miracle! Small, light weight and a good value for the price. Just one comb through and I got the sticky wet goop. A few more comb throughs and I found eye gunk that was buried in his muzzle. Most importantly, this comb removed the debris without causing any discomfort to my pooch. In fact, he seemed to enjoy it! Just look at the pictures." —Joanna

    Get it from Amazon for $5.95.

    32. A cleansing wrinkle cream so you can keep fungus and bacteria out of your pet's very adorable and scrunchy face wrinkles. It works super well for breeds like English bulldogs, Frenchies, and pugs, but is also a great option for long-haired breeds.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "AMAZING!!! My baby has wrinkles on top of wrinkles. This product has saved him! He was rubbing his face so hard on things to scratch in between his wrinkles that his whole face would break out and get irritated and his tail pocket gets so yeasty, red, and irritated. I put this product in every little crevice he has. It is soooo amazing!! We don’t ever travel without it! I will forever buy this product. Lifesaver!" —Heather Erin

    Get it from Amazon for $20.72.

    33. A flea and tick shampoo that'll banish fleas, ticks, larvae, and lice from your fur baby's fur. It contains aloe, lanolin, coconut extract, and oatmeal to soothe sensitive skin, and an insect growth regulator to kill fleas and prevent flea buildup for up to 28 days.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was highly skeptical given A. This is just shampoo B. Most of the reviews mentioned fleas and not ticks C. My dog was FULL of ticks... I mean at least 15-20 that I could see. I would have to warn you, that after using this shampoo, keep your dog OUTSIDE for 24 to 48 hours. I did not. In fact, I came home to a plethora of dead ticks in my living room. Dead ticks EVERYWHERE. I counted at least 10 little ones.. and the big ones... dear god... my dog found them before i could and burst them... leaving blood everywhere. That day will forever be known as the Tick Massacre of 2016." —sharon atkins

    Get it from Amazon for $9.79+ (available in two sizes).

    34. Or a medicated dog shampoo to help treat fungal and bacteria infections, inflamed scalp, greasy or waxy skin, red skin rashes, bald spots, plus itchy and flaky skin. To start, you can wash your pupper with the shampoo two to three times a week. It's dye-, paraben-, and soap-free.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Naturally, because of the ingredients, it has a strong smell. However, it does seem to leave my dog's skin feeling dry and provides good relief for her poor itchy skin. My dog Molly is a nine-pound mini dachshund whose little chest makes contact with the grass all the time so her skin gets itchy and irritated.
