The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 specific 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.
Consider the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are created to tackle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Petals & Paws stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
