The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted 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 specific 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 complete bath.
Take into consideration the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are made to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dover Agway sell a full variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
