The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog:
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 full bath.
Think about the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it soon becomes obvious why you need coat products that are created to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At Gone to the Dogs, we stock a variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's vital to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow dense undercoats while others have almost no undercoat whatsoever. All coats require the right kind of brush to decrease pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're not 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 kind of coat and certain issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
