The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific 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.
Take into consideration the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are developed to deal with these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Feed Bag stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
