The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Pup:
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes obvious why you should have coat products that are designed to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At Urban Tails Pet Supply, we stock a variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow compact undercoats while others have almost no undercoat whatsoever. All coats require the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may appreciate 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 Urban Tails Pet Supply in Minneapolis. Stop in or give us a call at (612) 879-0709 to discuss the kind of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
