yes dawn dish soap. just don't wash them often
every once and a while is fine.
it strips them of oils they need.

I use dog shampoo and bathe frequently. My goats are starting to like it. I've not had any problems with dry skin...

Yep feel free to wash em at will Just remember water is like acid to goats so you might be in for a fight! But if you do it enough they get used to it pretty fast. Legion, my pack goat has had water training since he was just a few months old and now not only follows me into the water when I go fishing but actually prefers it on hot days. Instead of eating at the bank, he will stands out in the water with me waiting for me to catch a fish.
