The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't made 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 maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the idea your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Four Muddy Paws sell a full range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
