The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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.
Consider the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are designed to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Tailwaggers sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Many dogs grow dense undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats demand using the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches.
