The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are designed to tackle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Spoiled Rott'n Pets & Their People stock a full variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Some dogs grow compact undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats require using the correct kind of brush to reduce 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 need the lightest of touches.
