The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Pup:
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 created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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.
Consider the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you need to have coat products that are developed to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At The Bark Club, we stock a range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow thick undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats require the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're unsure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at The Bark Club in Weymouth. Drop in or give us a call at (339) 201-4173 to discuss the kind of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
