The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
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 special hair and skin needs that call for 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 complete bath.
Consider the reality your pooch is highly 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 apparent why you really need coat products that are manufactured to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Barkery sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
