The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be enticed 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 special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 of the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are made to take on these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at AK Bark sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
