The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require 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.
Think of the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are made to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Ball Ground Hounds sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
