The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be lured 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 special 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.
Think of the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are created to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat 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 nice and looking fantastic.
