The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 full bath.
Think of the fact 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 patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are designed to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at A Dog's Dream sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
