The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are manufactured to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Wishbone Pet Company sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
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. Some dogs grow dense undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats call for using the correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin injury. Your dog may take pleasure in 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 experts at The Wishbone Pet Company in Freedom Drop in or give us a call at (831) 722-9474 number] to discuss the type of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
