The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Dog:
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 unique hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need to have coat products that are created to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Sit, Stay, 'N Play, we offer a range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
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. Some dogs grow compact undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat whatsoever. All coats require the right type of brush to decrease pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin injury. Your dog may appreciate 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 Sit, Stay, 'N Play in Stroudsburg. Stop in or give us a call at (570) 872-9748 to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
