The Importance of Finding the Perfect 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 unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 full bath.
Think about the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are developed to deal with these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Urban Dog sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
