The Importance of Choosing the Proper 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 developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are designed to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Paws On the Avenue stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
