The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are created to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Everything But The Dog sell a full variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
