The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 complete bath.
Take into consideration the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dogs Paw stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
