The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete 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 patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are made to deal with these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Cheshire Cat & Dog Too stock a full range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Use the Perfect 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 thick undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats call for using the correct kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and stop skin damage. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and call for the lightest of touches.
