The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be lured 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the idea your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are created to tackle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper components to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at My Best Friends Barkery sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
