The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be enticed 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 unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are created to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Urban Tails Pet Supply sell a complete range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
