The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific 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.
Consider the reality your pooch is very 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 made to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Everything But The Dog stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
