The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider 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, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are manufactured to deal with these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Bark & Purr sell a full variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
