The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
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 created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 full bath.
Consider the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are created to address these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Horses & Hounds sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
