The Importance of Finding the Best 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 special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the idea your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are manufactured to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Hounds Around Town sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
