The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't made 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 even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider 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, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are made to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Prairie Dog Pet Mercantile sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
