The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog:
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 distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy patches, and it soon becomes evident why you should have coat products that are designed to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At A Dog's Dream, we offer a variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow thick undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need the right kind of brush to decrease pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're unsure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at A Dog's Dream in New Bern.
