The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed 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 perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the idea your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you have to have coat products that are made to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Paw Print Pantry stock a full variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat

All coats demand using the correct kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin harm. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and call for the lightest of touches.
