The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed 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 maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are made to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet Pantry Yakima stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that meet 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. Some dogs grow compact undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat whatsoever. All coats require using the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin harm. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and demand the lightest of touches.
