The Importance of Choosing the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 complete bath.
Take into consideration 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 apparent why you need coat products that are made to deal with these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at My Best Friends Barkery sell a full range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
