The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be enticed 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the fact 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 quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are made to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Point Loma Pet Pantry stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
Use the Appropriate 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. Many dogs grow compact undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat whatsoever. All coats demand using the correct type of brush to minimize 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 call for the lightest of touches.
