The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 distinct 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 reality your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are designed to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Gone to the Dogs stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
