The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
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 distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are made to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper ingredients 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 fantastic.
