The Importance of Selecting the Proper 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 created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are manufactured to address these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Four Muddy Paws stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
