The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are created to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pure Pet stock a complete range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
