The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Dog:
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are made to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Tailwaggers, we stock a range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow thick undercoats while others have almost no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need the correct kind of brush to reduce 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 need 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 Tailwaggers in Whitefish. Drop in or give us a call at (406) 862-8988 to discuss the type of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the most effective for your dog.
