The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be enticed 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 distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 complete bath.
Think about the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are developed to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Pet Authority sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
