The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't created 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 perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Consider the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you have to have coat products that are manufactured to take on these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Petals & Paws sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking good.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat

All coats call for using the right kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches.
