The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
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 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 certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to deal with these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dog Day Afternoon stock a full range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
