The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
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 call for shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 full bath.
Think about the idea your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to deal with these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Barkfield Road sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
