The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are created to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Urban Dog stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
