The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could 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 distinct 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.
Take into consideration the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are created to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Tailwaggers sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
