The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
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 require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you need coat products that are made to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Grooming Place Pet Shop sell a full range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
