The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be enticed 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 unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are created to deal with these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Four Muddy Paws stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
