The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed 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 perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of 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 obvious why you need coat products that are created to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Barkfield Road stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
