The Importance of Choosing the Best 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 created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are created to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Feed Bag sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
