The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are made to take on these issues. 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 range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
