The Importance of Finding the Best Shampoo for Your Pup:
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem is, human-grade shampoo isn't formulated for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, pick up fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy patches, and it soon becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are developed to address these problems. Human-grade shampoo won't contain the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or eliminate unwanted hitchhikers. At Four Muddy Paws, we offer a range 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 differing from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's vital to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Several dogs grow compact undercoats while others have practically no undercoat at all. All coats need the correct type of brush to decrease 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 need the lightest of touches.
