Treatment protocols will differ depending upon which species of mite is affecting the dog. There are a number of topical treatments, including dips, shampoos, powders, creams and lotions, that are effective against mites. Oral and injectable medications are also available to treat mites. The dog’s immediate living environment and bedding should be cleaned and disinfected, along with grooming equipment, collars, leashes and any other areas or items that may harbor mites. Other pets in the household probably should also be treated. As always, a veterinarian is the best person to advise owners about the appropriate ways to prevent and treat mites in domestic dogs.

Diamataceous Earth - food grade. Just "google" it and it will explain how it works. It really does and it's inexpensive.

Yes you can use shampoo but there are lots of different types of shampoos. Try and search on google, and look for user reviews. Oh, you can also ask your vet if they have any prescription grade shampoos available.
