The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 require shampoos and conditioners with specific 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 reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are created to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Yarn & Bone Pet Supply stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great 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 varying from pin straight to tight curls. Many dogs grow thick undercoats while others have almost no undercoat whatsoever. All coats demand using the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin harm. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and call for the lightest of touches.
