The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are created to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Hounds Around Town sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
