The Importance of Picking the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 complete bath.
Think of 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 patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to tackle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Sniffany's Pet Boutique stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Many dogs grow compact undercoats while others have almost no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need using the correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage.
