The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are developed to take on these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at My Best Friends Barkery stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
