The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for 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 fact 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 rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are made to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Four Muddy Paws sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
