The Importance of Selecting the Proper 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 created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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.
Consider the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to deal with these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Paw Print Pantry sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
