The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might 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 complete bath.
Take into consideration the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Happy Tails Groom & Board sell a complete range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Some dogs grow dense undercoats while others have practically no undercoat at all. All coats require using the correct type of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin damage. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and demand the lightest of touches.
