The Importance of Selecting the Right 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 created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are designed to tackle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Rutherford Pet Supply sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
