The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for 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 of the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are developed to deal with these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Green K9 stock a full range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
