The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
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 developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are developed to address these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Bow Wow & Woofs stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
