The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are designed to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dogs Paw sell a full range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
