The Importance of Choosing the Perfect Shampoo for Your Dog
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 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 distinct 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.
Think about the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are created to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Benson's Pet Center stock a complete variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
Use the Perfect Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Several dogs grow dense undercoats while others have almost no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need using the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin harm.
