The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 full bath.
Consider the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are made to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Spoiled Rott'n Pets & Their People sell a complete range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
