The Importance of Selecting the Perfect 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 developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are developed to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Benson's Pet Center stock a full range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
