The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pup:
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require 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 full bath.
Consider the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it soon becomes apparent why you need to have coat products that are created to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Bark Street Petopia, we stock a range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow thick undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats need the correct kind of brush to decrease pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need 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 Bark Street Petopia in Marietta. Drop in or give us a call at (470) 485-2345 to discuss the kind of coat and certain issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
