The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
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 made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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.
Think of the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are designed to address these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Fancy Paws LLC sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
