The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog:
You may be enticed 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 particular 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 about the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you should have coat products that are developed to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At Living Pawsitively, we offer a variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's important to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow thick undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat at all. All coats need the correct kind 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 unsure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Living Pawsitively in Lafayette Township. Drop in or give us a call at (973) 862-6030 to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
