The Importance of Selecting the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog:
You might be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge 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 call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, itchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you need to have coat products that are developed to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the appropriate components to de-scent, heal dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. At Go Fetch, we stock a range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
Dog coats come in an array of textures with hair follicles varying from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's very important to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Many dogs grow compact undercoats while others have almost no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need the right kind of brush to decrease pulling out healthy hair and avoid 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 not sure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our professionals at Go Fetch in Winneconne. Drop in or give us a call at (920) 582-7265 to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the best for your dog.
