The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog:
You may be enticed 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 distinct hair and skin needs that require 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.
Take into consideration the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy spots, and it soon becomes apparent why you need to have coat products that are created to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At Everything But The Dog, we offer a variety 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 very 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 minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin injury. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're not sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Everything But The Dog in Reading. Drop in or give us a call at (781) 944-5300 to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
