The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain 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.
Consider the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are made to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at 3 Dogs & a Chick stock a full variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
