The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even 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 garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are made to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Cheshire Cat & Dog Too stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
