The Importance of Choosing the Best Shampoo for Your Pup:
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 call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are manufactured to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At GoodDog, we stock a range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow dense undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat whatsoever. All coats require the correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and stop skin injury. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're uncertain of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at GoodDog in Coeur d'Alene. Stop in or give us a call at (208) 664-4364 to discuss the type of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
