The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog:
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 complete bath.
Consider the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it soon becomes evident why you need to have coat products that are developed to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Chow Down Pet Supplies, we stock a variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Dog coats come in an array 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. Some dogs grow dense undercoats while others have almost no undercoat at all. All coats require the correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin damage. 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 unsure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Chow Down Pet Supplies in Montrose. Stop in or give us a call at (970) 249-5052 to discuss the type of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
