The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct 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.
Think about the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are created to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Barkery stock a full variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
