The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted 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 require 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.
Take into consideration the idea your pooch 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 evident why you need coat products that are made to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Animal Connection sell a complete range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
