The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete 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, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are created to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper components to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dover Agway stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
