The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are made to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pawsitively Native stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
