The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Dog:
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed 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 even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider 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 need to have coat products that are designed to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At Gone to the Dogs, we offer a variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Dog coats come in an array 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 dense undercoats while others have practically no undercoat at all. All coats require the right kind of brush to decrease pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin damage. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches.
