The Importance of Choosing the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You could 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 specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are made to deal with these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Horses & Hounds sell a full variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
