Dogs aren’t popular for loving bath-time. It’s quite possible that 9 out of 10 dogs don’t like grooming rituals. But bath time is non-negotiable, the frequency of which depends on many factors. Since dogs must be bathed, we want to ensure your pooch’s bath time is safe and soothing. So, we’ve listed 5 dog shampoos you can buy in the UAE.
Before heading to the list, here are some dos and don’ts to select the right shampoos for your dogs, as shared by American Kennel Club.
- Look for naturally derived ingredients.
- Choose soap-free options that soothe and hydrate rather than drying out skin and coat.
- Use human shampoo on your dog – it won’t have the right pH level and can cause skin irritations.
- Be fooled by artificial fragrances derived from chemicals that may cause allergic reactions.
- Purchase dog shampoos that include paraben and dyes – both can cause serious health problems.
