The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain 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.
Consider the reality 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 designed to tackle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Nilla's Tub sell a full variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
