The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific 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.
Take into consideration the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are manufactured to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Paw Print Pantry sell a complete range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
