The Importance of Finding 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 made 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 complete bath.
Think of the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming West U sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
