The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special 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 complete bath.
Consider the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are made to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Gone to the Dogs sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
