The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 distinct 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 fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are manufactured to take on these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Canine To Five stock a full range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
