The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pup:
You could be tempted 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 special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy patches, and it soon becomes evident why you should have coat products that are manufactured to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Paw Print Pantry, we stock a variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's crucial to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow dense undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat whatsoever. All coats require the correct kind of brush to reduce 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 need the lightest of touches. If you're uncertain of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Paw Print Pantry in Niantic. Stop in or give us a call at (860) 739-7297 to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
