The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be lured 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 unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 about the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are manufactured to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Happy Tails Market stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
