The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 complete bath.
Think about the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are created to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Horses & Hounds stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
