The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed 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 perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the idea your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are manufactured to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Horses & Hounds sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
