The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are made to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Bark & Purr stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
