The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of 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 spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are created to deal with these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Animal Connection sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
