The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 full bath.
Think of the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are made to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Horses & Hounds stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
