The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't made 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 maybe 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, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are designed to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Downtown Dog sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
