The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Pup:
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made 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 maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Take into consideration the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are developed to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Cheshire Cat & Dog Too, we stock a variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's crucial to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow dense undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats require the best kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and stop skin damage. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're unsure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Cheshire Cat & Dog Too in Cheshire.
