The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 certain 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 very 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 really need coat products that are designed to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at A Step Above Pet Nutrition and Training stock a full range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
