The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 about the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are made to deal with these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dog Day Afternoon stock a complete range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
