The Importance of Selecting 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 unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the reality your pooch is very 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 apparent why you really need coat products that are created to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Perk Valley Pet Eatery sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
