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 issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it soon becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are made to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Auggie's Pet Supplies, we offer a range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's vital to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow dense undercoats while others have almost no undercoat whatsoever. All coats require the correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're not exactly sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Auggie's Pet Supplies in Fort Lauderdale. Stop in or give us a call at (954) 830-4730 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.
