The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
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 full bath.
Consider the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are made to deal with these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Bark n' Purr stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
