The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be lured 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 distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 reality your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Feed Bag stock a complete range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
