The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Dog:
You could be lured 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 special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it soon becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are made to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At Dogs By Design, Holistic Wellness & Nutrition Center, we stock a variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's crucial to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow dense undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat at all. All coats require the right type of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may take pleasure in 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 professionals at Dogs By Design, Holistic Wellness & Nutrition Center in Irwin. Drop in or give us a call at (724) 382-4993 to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
