The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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.
Consider the idea your pooch 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 evident why you have to have coat products that are created to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Wag Nation stock a full range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
