Dogs have special 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.
Take into consideration the reality your pooch is highly 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 designed to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers.
