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 developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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.
Consider the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are created to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at AK Bark sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
