The Importance of Selecting the Right 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 developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special 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 complete bath.
Take into consideration the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are made to address these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at GoodDog stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
