The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 distinct 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 full bath.
Consider the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are designed to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet Pantry Yakima stock a full range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
