The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 full bath.
Think about the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are created to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Grooming Place Pet Shop stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
