The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 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 dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are designed to address these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Petals & Paws sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
