The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pup:
You could 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy patches, and it soon becomes evident why you really need coat products that are designed to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Bark N Scratch Outpost, we offer a variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice 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 right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow thick undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need the best type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're not exactly sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Bark N Scratch Outpost in Milwaukee. Stop in or give us a call at (414) 444-4110 to discuss the kind of coat and certain issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
