The Importance of Choosing the Best 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 designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique 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 cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the fact your pooch is very likely to roll in the rubbish, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are manufactured to tackle these troubles. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Berger's Agway sell a full variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in a variety of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Several dogs grow compact undercoats while others have almost no undercoat whatsoever. All coats call for using the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and avoid skin damage. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and need the lightest of touches. If you're unsure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our pros at Berger's Agway in Sciota Drop in or give us a call at (570) 992-5300 number] to discuss the type of coat and specific issues your dog has.
