The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are created to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Bark & Purr stock a complete range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
