The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog:
You could be enticed 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 require shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy patches, and it soon becomes evident why you really need coat products that are created to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At My Best Friend’s Barkery, we stock a range of dog grooming supplies 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 very important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow compact undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need the best kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. 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 experts at My Best Friend’s Barkery in Banner Elk.
