    I plan on getting a puppy soon and since I make my own soap I figured there had to be a recipe for dog soap/shampoo bar. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    Hi Rebecca,

    Thanks for posting this recipe! I was wondering if you knew the pH of this soap. I know dogs have slightly more alkaline skin than humans so soap that has a pH around 7 is ideal for their skin.
