The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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.
Consider the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are designed to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Four Muddy Paws sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
