The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are designed to deal with these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at AK Bark stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
