The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted 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 distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full 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 spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are made to deal with these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with 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 nice and looking excellent.
