The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Pup:
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 distinct hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think about the idea that your dog is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy patches, and it soon becomes obvious why you need coat products that are designed to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At The Raw Connection, we stock a variety of dog grooming supplies that satisfy 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. Some dogs grow dense undercoats while others have almost no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need the right kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin injury. 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 uncertain of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at The Raw Connection in Carmel. Drop in or give us a call at (831) 626-7555 to discuss the kind of coat and certain issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the most effective for your dog.
