The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 perhaps dry coat cleansers 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 garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are made to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dog Gone Holistic sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
