The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require 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 complete bath.
Take into consideration the fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are created to take on these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Hounds Around Town stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
