The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed 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 maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are made to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Fetching Dog sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
