The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct 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 cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are made to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet Pantry & Dog Wash sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
