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 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 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.
Think about the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are designed to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Paws on Main stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
