The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed 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 maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the reality 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 spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need coat products that are manufactured to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Benson's Pet Center sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Some dogs grow compact undercoats while others have practically no undercoat whatsoever. All coats call for using the right kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches.
