The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are designed to address these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dover Agway sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Many dogs grow compact undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats need using the right type of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and stop skin harm. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and demand the lightest of touches.
