The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Four Muddy Paws sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
