The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct 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.
Consider the fact your pooch 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 rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are developed to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Bark Street Petopia stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Some dogs grow dense undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats need using the correct 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 need the lightest of touches. If you're uncertain of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Bark Street Petopia in Marietta Stop in or give us a call at (470) 485-2345 number] to discuss the type of coat and specific issues your dog has.
