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 developed 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 maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to address these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Ball Ground Hounds sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
