The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You may 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 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 full bath.
Think about the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are created to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Petals & Paws stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
