The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 certain 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.
Think about the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you need coat products that are created to tackle these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Tailgait Market stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat

All coats demand using the best type of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin damage.
