The Importance of Choosing the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't made 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 maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about 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 quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are created to deal with these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper components to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at A Step Above Pet Nutrition and Training sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
