The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are created to take on these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Three Happy Hounds sell a full range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
