The Importance of Picking the Perfect 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 special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 full bath.
Consider the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are made to deal with these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Harbor Pet stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
