The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed 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 maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are created to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Southern Barker stock a full variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat

All coats need using the best type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage.
