The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 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 complete bath.
Consider the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are designed to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dirty Dog LLC sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
