The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pup:
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated 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 cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Take into consideration the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy patches, and it soon becomes apparent why you should have coat products that are designed to tackle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At The Tailgait Market, we stock a variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow compact undercoats while others have practically no undercoat at all. All coats need the correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. 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 professionals at The Tailgait Market in Asheville. Stop in or give us a call at (828) 258-1600 to discuss the type of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
