The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 of the fact your dog is very 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 obvious why you need coat products that are developed to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Gone to the Dogs stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
