The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
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 made 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.
Think about the idea your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are created to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Waggin’ Trains sell a full variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
