The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for 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.
Think of the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are manufactured to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at ShakaPaw stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
