The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 idea 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 spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are created to take on these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at A Step Above Pet Nutrition and Training stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
