The Importance of Selecting the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated 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 full bath.
Think about the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at J-B Pet Supplies stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat

All coats require using the right kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches.
