The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog:
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special 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, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you should have coat products that are created to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Bag of Bones Barkery, we stock a range 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 differing from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's crucial to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow thick undercoats while others have practically no undercoat whatsoever. All coats require the best type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're not sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Bag of Bones Barkery in Hamilton Township. Drop in or give us a call at (609) 528-0101 to discuss the type of coat and certain issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
