The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You may 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 maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are designed to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Sniffany's Pet Boutique stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
