The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could 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 require shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 complete bath.
Consider 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, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are created to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dog Day Afternoon sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
