The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
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 developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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.
Think about the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are designed to address these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Hounds Around Town stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
