The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made 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 maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are designed to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Petals & Paws sell a full variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
