The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the idea 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 spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Everything But The Dog sell a full range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
