The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 certain 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.
Consider the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are designed to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at ShakaPaw sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
