The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog:
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated 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 maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need to have coat products that are made to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Gone to the Dogs, we offer a range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow compact undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats require the correct kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're not exactly sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Gone to the Dogs in Wakefield. Stop in or give us a call at (781) 245-6787 to discuss the type of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
