The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with particular formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the fact your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are created to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pet's General Store sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking excellent.
Use the Right 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 injury.
