The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be enticed 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 special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular 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.
Think about the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are made to take on these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Grooming Place Pet Shop sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
