The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct 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 cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the idea your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are designed to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Ball Ground Hounds stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
