Only some types. Nothing with special things like hair renewers, or stuff like that.

Yes, it think it is but you have to condition him with dog conditioner. It won't get rid of fleas or ticks if you use human shampoo though. I'm not so sure on this because i've never had a dog before.

Can't use it. It builds up on their skin and will cause serious skin issues. Only baby shampoo if you have no dog shampoo

I sometimes use Dawn dish soap. I know they use it to help wildlife in oil spill situations.

No. It drys out the dogs skin and they start scratching a lot. Go to pet smart. Get something with Aloe and Oatmeal. It's not expensive.

Yes it is perfectly ok. There really is no difference, but I'd it is possible try to wash your dog with dog shampoo.

Nooooo!!! You must always use dog shampoo like candybar said get oatmeal shampoo. But the only thing you can use is baby shampoo. Regular shampoo will hurt their skin and it will make the skin very itchy and the poor dog will chew its self raw

Nope. You can use baby shampoo. In my opinion, it makes them smell like a baby duck! :3 We get my dog this stuff. It's great for hunting dogs and dogs that are always outside.
