The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are made to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Waggin' Wheels Pet Supply stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
