The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog:
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique 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.
Consider the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need to have coat products that are created to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Pawsitively Native, we offer a variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow thick undercoats while others have practically no undercoat at all. All coats require the right kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and stop skin damage. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're uncertain of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Pawsitively Native in Gunnison. Drop in or give us a call at (970) 642-4250 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.
