The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 call for 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.
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, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are designed to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Hungry Hound Boutique & Grooming sell a complete range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
