The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog:
You might be tempted 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it soon becomes apparent why you need to have coat products that are designed to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At High Paw Pet Supplies, we stock a variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's crucial to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow thick undercoats while others have practically no undercoat at all. All coats require the right kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid 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. If you're not exactly sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at High Paw Pet Supplies in Fairplay. Drop in or give us a call at (719) 836-4909 to discuss the type of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
