The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't created 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 even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are made to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Southern Barker sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
