The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted 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 unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are manufactured to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Scratch and Sniff Pet Supplies stock a full range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
