The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed 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 even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are designed to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at ShakaPaw sell a complete range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
