The Importance of Finding the Right 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 made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 complete bath.
Think of the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are manufactured to deal with these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Auggie's Pet Supplies stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
