The Importance of Choosing the Right Shampoo for Your Dog:
You may be lured 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 unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it soon becomes apparent why you really need coat products that are developed to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At Rivertown Feed & Pet Country Store, we offer a range 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 crucial to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow dense undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats need the correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need 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 experts at Rivertown Feed & Pet Country Store in Petaluma. Drop in or give us a call at (707) 762-4505 to discuss the kind of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the most effective for your dog.
