The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 particular 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 fact your dog 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 evident why you have to have coat products that are made to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Tailwaggers stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
