The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
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 developed 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 perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are created to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at The Tailgait Market sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Use the Appropriate 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. Many dogs grow thick undercoats while others have practically no undercoat whatsoever. All coats demand using the right kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and stop skin harm. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches.
