The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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.
Take into consideration the idea your pooch 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 obvious why you have to have coat products that are made to take on these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Horses & Hounds sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
