The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific 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.
Take into consideration the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are made to deal with these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Paws & Fins Pet Shop sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
