The Importance of Selecting the Best 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 require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 full bath.
Consider the idea your dog is very 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 evident why you need coat products that are made to address these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Green K9 sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that meet 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 range of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Several dogs grow compact undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat whatsoever. All coats require using the correct kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin harm. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and demand the lightest of touches. If you're uncertain of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at The Green K9 in Mt Dora Drop in or give us a call at (352) 729-6172 number] to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has.
