The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Pup:
You might be lured 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 distinct 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 the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy patches, and it soon becomes obvious why you need to have coat products that are made to handle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At One Wag (Natural Pet Supplies), we stock a variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Dog coats come in a variety 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. Many dogs grow dense undercoats while others have practically no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need the best type of brush to decrease 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 need 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 professionals at One Wag (Natural Pet Supplies) in Port Washington. Stop in or give us a call at (262) 261-5303 to discuss the type of coat and certain issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the most effective for your dog.
