The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 specific 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 of the fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are developed to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at J-B Pet Supplies stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Use the Right 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 thick undercoats while others have almost no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need using the correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and stop skin harm. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches.
