The Importance of Choosing the Perfect 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 unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps 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 rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are developed to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Bark & Purr sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
