The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique 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 full bath.
Think about the idea your pooch 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 quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are made to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Paw Print Pantry sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
