The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 call for 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 full bath.
Take into consideration the fact 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 quickly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are designed to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Bark Street Petopia sell a full range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
