The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are made to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet's General Store sell a complete range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
