The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special 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 full bath.
Think of the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you need coat products that are designed to take on these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Wag Nation sell a full variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
