The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Dog:
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 complete bath.
Take into consideration the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy patches, and it soon becomes obvious why you should have coat products that are created to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Gone to the Dogs, we offer a range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow compact undercoats while others have practically no undercoat at all. All coats need the right type of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and stop skin damage. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're uncertain of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Gone to the Dogs in Wakefield. Drop 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 most effective for your dog.
