The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
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 designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 complete bath.
Take into consideration the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to take on these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at AK Bark stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
