The Importance of Finding the Proper 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 made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for 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 complete bath.
Consider the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are developed to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Liz's Pet Shop stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
