The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 full bath.
Think about the reality your pooch 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 rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Barkery sell a full variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
