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 formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific 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.
Think about the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are created to address these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Horses & Hounds sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
