The Importance of Finding the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
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 created 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 cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the idea your pooch is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are manufactured to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dog Day Afternoon stock a full variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
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. Many dogs grow dense undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats require using the correct kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and demand the lightest of touches.
