The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be enticed 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 distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are designed to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Southern Barker sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Use the Perfect Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
