The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may 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 special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 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 patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are made to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Auggie's Pet Spa sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
