The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated 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 even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are made to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Southern Barker sell a full range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
