The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the idea 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 obvious why you have to have coat products that are developed to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at ShakaPaw stock a complete range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
