The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are developed to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Benson's Pet Center stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
