The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the idea your dog is highly 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 developed to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of 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 products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Use the Perfect Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat

All coats call for using the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin harm.
