The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for 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.
Consider the idea your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are designed to address these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Prairie Dog Pet Mercantile stock a complete range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
