The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are created to deal with these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Sniffany's of York stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
