The Importance of Selecting the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You might be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the reality your dog is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are developed to take on these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet's General Store sell a complete variety of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking excellent.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat

All coats demand using the right kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin harm. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches.
