There may be a lot of dog shampoos out there; but I’ll save you the hassle, and review dog shampoos to try and find the best shampoo for Yorkies’ hair.

At a Glance

Off the bat, it seems that Natural Rapport 5-in-1 Pet Wash is edging out its competition by offering more benefits. However, the isle of Dogs Everyday shampoo is close to its heels with its claims of protecting and strengthening your animal friend’s coat.

#1. Espree Natural Silky Show Shampoo

The Espree Natural Silky Show is a shampoo designed for canine and felines, alike with a ‘Calming Water’ scent; although we are reviewing its dog shampooing capabilities here. It claims to make your Yorkie’s hair, clean, shiny, and healthy.

Preliminary Round Score for the Espree Natural Silky Show Shampoo: Basic is Good

Espree Natural Silky Show Shampoo does nothing outrageous and out of the ordinary; but it does deliver its promises. Although it claims to be a luxurious shampoo, it’s looking more and more like your basic doggie shampoo.

The packaging is a hit for me, slap a dog in front and I’ll be all over it. But more than the cute dog picture of a dog, I appreciate that clarity of information printed on the bottle from its name and size, all the way to the composition of its ingredients.

Key Features of the Espree Natural Silky Show Shampoo

  • Comes in 20-ounce sizes.
  • With a light ‘Calming Water’ scent.
  • Aloe vera extract for additional moisturizing properties.
  • Makes coat somewhat manageable.
  • Gives coat a shiny, silky, and healthy feel.

Espree Natural Silky Show Shampoo: Your Friendly Neighborhood Shampoo

Over-all the Espree Natural Silky Show Shampoo is a good pick for a shampoo, but it doesn’t offer something really special compared to other dog shampoos.

Don’t get me wrong, this shampoo does seem to make the coat look healthier and shinier. It’s just that compared to the other shampoos in this review it doesn’t wow me so much.

Is it Your Yorkie’s the One?

If you enjoy a better alternative to the generic and ill-smelling dog shampoos that does almost nothing to your Yorkie’s coat, then this may be the shampoo made for your furry companion.

I can’t definitely say that I think it is the best among the three shampoos in this review; but I am saying that it is a shampoo worth considering.


#2: Isle of Dogs Everyday Shampoo

Compared to the general use of the Espree Natural Silky Show Shampoo, the Isle of Dogs Everyday Jasmine & Vanilla Sky Coating Shampoo is specifically created for your canine companion. This shampoo claims that it can help your Yorkie have a clean, soft, and tangle-free coat with every wash.

Pros and Cons of the Isle of Dogs Everyday Shampoo

Pros

  • Interesting fragrance combination that works.
  • Cleans and softens coat well.
  • Seems to hydrate the coat really well.
  • Makes the coat look and feel stronger and healthier.
  • Lathers quite well.

Cons

  • Coat needs additional spray to untangle difficult knots in the coat.
  • Have to be used together with other products in the line for best results.

Preliminary Round Score for the Isle of Dogs Everyday Shampoo: Looking Pretty Good

The Isle of Dogs Everyday Shampoo makes big promises and was quite effective in delivering them. Although it is a step up from the Espree Natural Silky Show Shampoo, it still needs back-up from other products to let your Yorkie fully have that show-stopping coat.

Although the packaging doesn’t have a cute dog photo, I still appreciate its subtle and elegant design and inviting cream and brown color scheme. The only thing I worry about is that people may mistake this for human shampoo if they weren’t paying close attention.

Like the Espree Natural Silky Show Shampoo, I appreciate that it has clear markings and information labels. Hence, the only reason that any human will mistake this for people shampoo; is when they’re too distracted, having a hard time seeing, or they would just want to try it out for kicks.

Key Features of the Isle of Dogs Everyday Shampoo

  • Mild shampoo that comes in 16-ounce bottles.
  • Gives a surprisingly good-smelling combination of jasmine and lavender scents.
  • Additional Panthenol to strengthen and protect your dog’s coat.
  • Inclusion of Aloe vera to boost moisturizing effect.
  • Makes the coat manageable to some degree.
  • Aids in making your dog’s coat feel healthier, smoother, and more resilient and protected.

Isle of Dogs Everyday Shampoo: The Datable Shampoo

If the Espree Natural Silky Show Shampoo may be doomed in the friendzone of doggie shampoos, the Isle of Dogs Everyday Shampoo is the sweet-smelling datable kind with its added ability to protect and strengthen the coat.

I don’t really know if my Yorkie likes the scent, but his human is really digging the lavender and vanilla combo. Okay, maybe that was just a plus in the other benefits of the shampoo that includes a shiny, silky, well-hydrated, and healthy coat.

Is it Your Yorkie’s the One?

My Yorkie doesn’t complain and you won’t hear me complain, but if you’re into having your little Yorkie buddy turn into a pretty good looking, scented ball of fluff; then this may end your shampoo search right here. Otherwise, you may want to step away from the bottle and look into the next doggie shampoo in this review.


#3: Natural Rapport 5-in-1 Pet Wash

I have to admit that the 5-in-1 label in the Natural Rapport 5-in-1 Pet Wash called out to me because it promises to give me savings as I would just need to buy a single bottle to replace all the products that I need to keep my dog’s coat look great.

This shampoo claims to clean, condition, deodorize, moisturize, and de-tangle my canine pal’s coat, while ensuring that the ingredients used are all natural, pet-friendly, and dog-friendly.

Pros and Cons of the Natural Rapport 5-in-1 Pet Wash

Pros

  • Cleans and conditions the coat really well.
  • Does a decent job moisturizing and soothing dry and itchy skin.
  • Seems to hydrate the coat really well.
  • Lathers really well and rinses fairly quick.
  • Great for sensitive skin.
  • Comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Cons

  • Deodorizes smell but only has a faint suggestion of a scent.
  • Smallest bottle size among the three shampoos reviewed.

Preliminary Round Score for theNatural Rapport 5-in-1 Pet Wash: The Double Take-Worthy Shampoo

Compared to the Espree Natural Silky Show Shampoo and the Isle of Dogs Everyday Shampoo, the Natural Rapport 5-in-1 Pet Wash makes you want to really consider using it. Aside from the possibility of saving quite a bit on dog care products, it makes you wonder if it does really work.

I think that it does well keeping those promises.

The cute dog photo in the packaging is back, and my soul is cooing at it; this is a professional reaction, by the way. Although the cuteness factor is amped up a bit in this shampoo’s packaging, it still contributes to the cohesiveness of the design that was aiming for the natural and eco-friendly look.

And like the Espree Natural Silky Show Shampoo and the Isle of Dogs Everyday Shampoo, the pieces of information on the label are all clearly printed helping consumers know what they’re really introducing to their canine friend’s coat.

Key Features of the Natural Rapport 5-in-1 Pet Wash

  • Offered in 15.2 ounces.
  • Ingredients are all natural and pet-friendly.
  • The bottle is biodegradable and eco-friendly.
  • Formulated to be ultra-mild and soap-free.
  • Gives ‘clean dog’ scent with a very light citrus scent.

  • With Aloe vera to further hydrate and soothe
  • Does make coat manageable, healthier-looking, shinier, and smoother.

Natural Rapport 5-in-1 Pet Wash: The Shampoo Worthy of a Long-Standing Relationship

I think that the Natural Rapport 5-in-1 Pet Wash is the shampoo that does so much for your pet in terms of cleansing, conditioning, deodorizing, moisturizing, and untangling your pet’s locks all in a single bottle. It may not have the head-turner scents that you get from the Espree Natural Silky Show Shampoo, especially with the Isle of Dogs Everyday jasmine and vanilla-scented shampoo; but it does make them smell clean and it doesn’t mask the smell of your dog that they and other does might appreciate.

Is it Your Yorkie’s the One?

Regardless if you’re the Yorkie who looks for all natural and eco-friendly products, or the one who looks to get the best deals on products; then the Natural Rapport 5-in-1 Pet Wash may just be the shampoo for you. With its naturally-derived ingredients, environment-friendly packaging, and 5-in-1 capacity, you can be both at the same time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it all right to use my shampoo on my Yorkie?

I know that you want to share almost everything with your beloved dog, but I would advise against using your shampoo on your Yorkie. As eating chocolate can be beneficial for humans and lethal for dogs, human shampoo have certain components that make it more acidic and harmful to dogs.

One-time human shampoo use will not do a great deal of damage, but it you use it consistently; your Yorkie’s coat may become duller, drier, coarser, and ultimately harder to manage.

Although all of them have great qualities and are shampoos that you may want to seriously consider when looking for a Yorkie shampoo; I think my Yorkie and I appreciate the 5-in-1 ultra-mild with oatmeal formulation in this shampoo compared to the other two.
