The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
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 designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 full bath.
Think about the fact your pooch is highly 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 evident why you need coat products that are developed to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Woof Gang Allendale stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
