The Importance of Choosing the Perfect 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 unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are designed to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Four Muddy Paws stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
