The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are developed to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Bark & Purr sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
