The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch

Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are developed to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of 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 fantastic.
