The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted 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 special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are created to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet Barn stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
