The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are manufactured to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at GiGi's Pet Market sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Several dogs grow compact undercoats while others have practically no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need using the right kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and demand the lightest of touches.
