The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 fact your pooch is very 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 apparent why you need coat products that are made to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Waggin' Wheels Pet Supply stock a full variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
