The Importance of Selecting the Proper 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 created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners 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, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are developed to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dirty Dog LLC stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
