The Importance of Choosing 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 developed 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 maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are designed to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Benson's Canine Cookies sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
