The Importance of Choosing the Right 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 developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are designed to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dover Agway stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
