The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the idea your dog is very 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 obvious why you have to have coat products that are made to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Downtown Dog sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
