The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog:
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific 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.
Take into consideration the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are made to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Pet Barn Inc, we stock a variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow dense undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats need the best type of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. 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 not sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Pet Barn Inc in Annapolis. Drop in or give us a call at (410) 573-0404 to discuss the type of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the most effective for your dog.
