The Importance of Choosing the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete 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, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are designed to handle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Barkfield Road sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
