The Importance of Picking the Perfect 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 created for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the reality your dog is very 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 apparent why you have to have coat products that are made to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. We at Rivertown Feed & Pet Country Store stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Several dogs grow dense undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat at all. All coats require using the correct type of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin injury. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and demand the lightest of touches.
