The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 specific 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.
Take into consideration the fact 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 spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are designed to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct components to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Hounds Around Town stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
