The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the fact your dog 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 rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are designed to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Urban Dog stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
