The Importance of Picking the Best 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 developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are made to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dog Day Afternoon stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
