The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique 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.
Consider 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 rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are made to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Chow Down Pet Supplies sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
