The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are manufactured to deal with these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate 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 great and looking excellent.
