Check dandruff to see if your dog has a case of walking dandruff or Cheyletiella mites, which are a parasite that resembles dandruff. Treat with anti-parasitics and remove eggs if present.
Make sure you address underlying medical conditions such as infections, dietary issues, allergies, or endocrine and metabolic disorders by seeking veterinary advice.
Use the correct, dog-appropriate, anti-dandruff shampoo for your dog's skin condition and dandruff, either oily or dry seborrhea.
Ensure that bathing is conducted with non-slip mats and with water of the appropriate temperature, not too hot or too cold.
Address any secondary infections that occur due to your dog scratching or chewing at itchy dandruff conditions.

Thank you for the question about Bentley's dandruff, Angela. I recommend going to the vet clinic and seeing what they have for sale there. That way, you will be buying something that is gentle and safe for your dog's skin. Don't bathe Bentley too often because doing so can sometimes make the situation worse. Here is a great article from our website - it mentions several natural remedies for dog dandruff. https://wagwalking.com/wellness/treating-your-dogs-dandruff-and-dry-skin-naturally Good luck!
