The Importance of Choosing the Best 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 designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for 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.
Think about the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are designed to deal with these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Four Muddy Paws stock a full range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
