The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
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 formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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.
Consider the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are developed to handle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Wag Nation sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that meet 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 varying from pin straight to tight curls. Some dogs grow dense undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat at all. All coats call for using the correct kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and stop skin injury. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches.
