The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be enticed 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 unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 complete bath.
Think about the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Flying M Feed & Pet Grocery sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat

All coats require using the correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin harm.
