The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are made to deal with these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Horses & Hounds stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
