The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
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 created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique 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 complete bath.
Think of the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to address these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet Barn sell a full variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
