Welcome yvesj, I'm sorry to hear that you sheltie is having problems with his coat. Human shampoo shouldn't be used on dogs since they contain sulfates designed to remove oil, and so cause dry skin and itchiness. Of course, I would discontinue the use of human shampoo immediately but I would also take your dog to see his vet, perhaps even a veterinary dermatologist. It may be that the hair loss is not related to the use of the shampoo and may be a result of a thyroid issue, allergies, or another medical problem.

These articles may be of help to you. Shelties are prone to thyroid issues so you may want to ask your vet if s/he did a thyroid check when your dog was last seen.
