The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are made to take on these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dog Gone Holistic sell a full variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
