The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the reality your dog is highly 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 evident why you need coat products that are designed to tackle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Urban Dog sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
