The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Pup:
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special 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 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 quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are made to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Gone to the Dogs, we offer a variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow compact undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat at all. All coats require the correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin injury. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're not exactly sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals 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 particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
