The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require 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 complete bath.
Consider the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Scratch and Sniff Pet Supplies sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
