The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted 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 special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the fact 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 patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are developed to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Liz's Pet Shop stock a full variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
