The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog:
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners 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, itchy spots, and it soon becomes evident why you should have coat products that are created to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Gone to the Dogs, we offer a range of dog grooming supplies 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 crucial to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow compact undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat whatsoever. All coats require the best type of brush to minimize 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 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. 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.
