The Importance of Choosing the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special 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.
Take into consideration the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are developed to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of 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.
