The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the reality 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 really need coat products that are designed to deal with these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at 3 Dogs & a Chick sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
