The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the fact 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 patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are made to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at ShakaPaw stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
