The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you have to have coat products that are designed to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Benson's Pet Center stock a complete range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
Use the Right 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. Several dogs grow dense undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat whatsoever. All coats demand using the correct kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin injury. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches.
