The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 reality your dog 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 obvious why you need coat products that are developed to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at AK Bark sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
