The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't made 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 maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are created to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Downtown Dog stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Many dogs grow thick undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats require using the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin harm. 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 The Downtown Dog in Cleveland Drop in or give us a call at (423) 790-5252 number] to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has.
