The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are developed to tackle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Urban Dog stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
