The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be enticed 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 special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 complete bath.
Think about the fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are manufactured to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Wag Nation stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
