The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 idea your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are designed to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Urban Tails Pet Supply stock a full range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
