The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might 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 unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of 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 spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are developed to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Wishbone Pet Company sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
