The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration 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, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are created to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Southern Barker sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat

All coats require using the right kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin harm.
