The Importance of Choosing the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are designed to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at All American Pet stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Some dogs grow compact undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat at all. All coats need using the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin harm.
