The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed 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 maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are created to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Petropolis sell a complete range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
