The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 specific 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 full bath.
Think about the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, 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 manufactured to tackle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Downtown Dog sell a full variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Use the Perfect Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat

All coats require using the right kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and demand the lightest of touches.
