The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted 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 specific 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 full bath.
Think of the fact your pooch 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 quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to address these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of 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 nice and looking good.
