The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted 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 special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific 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.
Think of the idea your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are designed to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at All Paws Gourmet Pet Store sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Use the Perfect Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Several dogs grow dense undercoats while others have practically no undercoat at all. All coats require using the correct kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and demand the lightest of touches.
