The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are made to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Barkery stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
