The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Pup:
You may be tempted 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 special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with certain 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 complete bath.
Consider the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need to have coat products that are designed to handle these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Miss Kibbles, we offer a range of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow dense undercoats while others have practically no undercoat at all. All coats require the correct kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're unsure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Miss Kibbles in Bristow. Stop in or give us a call at (571) 379-7832 to discuss the kind of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
