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 designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique 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.
Think about the fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are manufactured to tackle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dover Agway stock a full variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
