The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require 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 of the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are created to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Petals & Paws sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
