Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are developed to tackle these problems.
