The Importance of Selecting the Right 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 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 perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are created to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Dogs By Design Holistic Wellness Center stock a full range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Several dogs grow thick undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat whatsoever. All coats demand using the right 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.
