The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
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 distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are designed to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Wag Nation stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
