The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
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 formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 complete bath.
Consider 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 spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are manufactured to deal with these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Bag of Bones Barkery sell a full range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
