The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 complete bath.
Consider the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are created to deal with these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Horses & Hounds stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
