The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch

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 cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration 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 patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are designed to address these challenges.

We at The Feed Bag sell a full variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
