The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are created to deal with these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Gone to the Dogs sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
