The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You might 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the idea your dog 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 quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are developed to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Everything But The Dog stock a full variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
