The Importance of Choosing the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be enticed 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 unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular 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.
Think about the fact your dog 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 manufactured to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Downtown Dog sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
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. Several dogs grow compact undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat at all. All coats need using the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and call for the lightest of touches. If you're not sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our pros at The Downtown Dog in Cleveland Drop in or give us a call at (423) 790-5252 number] to discuss the type of coat and specific issues your dog has.
