The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You could 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 distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are designed to deal with these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Grooming Place Pet Shop sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
