The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be enticed 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 distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 full bath.
Think about the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are made to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Adventure Pets sell a complete variety of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat

All coats need using the best kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin injury.
