The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for 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 complete bath.
Consider the idea your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, 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 made to take on these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Other End of the Leash Pet Boutique & Bakery stock a full variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
