The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could 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 distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 full bath.
Think about the fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are designed to take on these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Benson's Canine Cookies stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
