The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are created to tackle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dog Day Afternoon stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
