The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog:
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need to have coat products that are manufactured to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Pet Pantry & Dog Wash, we stock a variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow compact undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats require the correct kind of brush to decrease pulling out healthy hair and stop skin damage. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're not exactly sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Pet Pantry & Dog Wash in Colorado Springs. Stop in or give us a call at (719) 629-9274 to discuss the type of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the most effective for your dog.
