The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pup:
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are developed to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Hounds Around Town, we stock a range of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow compact undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats require the best type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and stop skin injury. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're not exactly sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Hounds Around Town in Whitefish Bay. Drop in or give us a call at (414) 431-8661 to discuss the type of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the most effective for your dog.
