The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
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 made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are created to take on these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Paddywack stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that meet 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 range of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Many dogs grow thick undercoats while others have practically no undercoat at all. All coats demand using the correct kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and stop skin harm. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and demand 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 experts at Paddywack in Mill Creek Drop in or give us a call at (425) 357-6510 number] to discuss the type of coat and certain issues your dog has.
