The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are developed to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Benson's Pet Center sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
