The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the idea your dog is very 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 apparent why you really need coat products that are designed to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Happy Pooch Styling & Spa stock a complete range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
