The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
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 made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are developed to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at My Best Friends Barkery stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
