The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may 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 specific 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.
Think of the idea your dog is highly 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 evident why you really need coat products that are made to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't have 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 supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
