The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
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 made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require 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.
Think about the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are designed to take on these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Everything But The Dog stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
