The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog:
You may be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue 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 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, itchy spots, and it soon becomes evident why you need coat products that are created to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At Happy Pooch Styling & Spa, we stock a variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Dog coats come in a range 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. Some dogs grow thick undercoats while others have virtually no undercoat whatsoever. All coats require the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin injury. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're not sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Happy Pooch Styling & Spa in Lynden. Drop in or give us a call at (360) 318-9949 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.
