The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for those times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas and ticks or get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are designed to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at A Step Above Pet Nutrition and Training stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Some dogs grow dense undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats require using the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. 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 sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at A Step Above Pet Nutrition and Training in Canton.
