The Importance of Choosing the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't created 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 cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are developed to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dover Agway sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
