The Importance of Choosing the Best Shampoo for Your Pup:
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 full bath.
Consider the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy patches, and it soon becomes evident why you really need coat products that are manufactured to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At Tailwaggers, we offer a range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow dense undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat at all. All coats require the best kind 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 exactly sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Tailwaggers in Whitefish. Drop in or give us a call at (406) 862-8988 to discuss the kind of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
