Looking for a good dog shampoo

What do you guys recommend for a good dog shampoo that also kills fleas?  We just got a new member of the family yesterday evening and want to give her a bath.  It has been a while since we had a dog. 

I want to give her a bath today, so shipping would not be an option.  I have Walmart, Petsmart, Tractor Supply, and Southern States close by. 
Thanks,

Matthew

    You don't need to shampoo for fleas anymore. There is a cream available that you apply to the back of the neck every few months.

    I have a vet appointment, but its not for a few days.  When we had our last dog, we applied K9 Advantix II every month for fleas.  However, I need her weight first so I can purchase the right type as they go by weight.  Is that what you are referring to?
    Thanks,

    Matthew

    I have had amazing success with a squeeze bottle made up if Dawn and a little vinegar. Read about it on the internet. Couldn't believe the results. Give it a try.

    I'm not at home right now so I can't give you the brand. I do know that my wife uses it on all three dogs and a cat. That's a Chihuahua, a Bijon and a bernese and a nasty mutt cat. Same stuff for all and I think its just a little on her fingertip.

    i gave up on the flea baths and use frontline drops once a month, everymonth. for shampoo i use regular head and shoulders as my last dog had allergies to every shampoo out there and that seemed to work the best.

    Interesting.  I have read where some folks are using Johnson&Johnson brand baby shampoo for dogs as its gentle for their coats. 
    Thanks,

    petsmart should have the frontline, they should even have the scale, eitherway i just bring the dog to the vet office and weigh him, they never charged me for that with or without an appointment
