The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the idea 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 obvious why you need coat products that are manufactured to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at A Dog's Dream stock a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Several dogs grow dense undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat whatsoever. All coats require using the best kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and stop skin harm. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and call for the lightest of touches.
