The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for 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 full 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 spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Grooming Place Pet Shop stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Some dogs grow compact undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat whatsoever. All coats demand using the correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin injury. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and demand the lightest of touches.
