The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about 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 quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are developed to deal with these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet Pantry & Dog Wash sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
