The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Pup:
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to deal with these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Gone to the Dogs, we stock a range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's crucial to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow compact undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats need the correct kind of brush to reduce 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 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 very best for your dog.
