Q. Whats do you look for in buying shampoo? And what brand? For large dogs (German shepherd)

A. I would look for a dog shampoo that is gentle with ingredents such as oatmeal to soothe skin irritation. I would avoid all flea shampoos they do not work and you will need to have your dog on a flea preventative. You can use human baby shampoo use as Johnson's.
