The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pup:
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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.
Consider the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy patches, and it quickly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are created to deal with these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the appropriate components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At Ball Ground Hounds, we offer a variety of dog grooming products that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the appropriate brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow compact undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat at all. All coats need the correct kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. 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 not sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Ball Ground Hounds in Ball Ground. Stop in or give us a call at (770) 735-1855 to discuss the type of coat and specific issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the most effective for your dog.
