The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might 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 distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 complete bath.
Think about the idea your dog 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 tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet Works sell a full range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
