The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted 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 specific 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 complete bath.
Think of the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are made to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at My Best Friends Barkery stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
