The Importance of Picking the Right Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 require shampoos and conditioners with particular 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 complete bath.
Think about the fact your dog is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, itchy patches, and it rapidly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are created to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the appropriate components to de-scent, treat dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Treats on a Leash stock a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking great.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles differing from pin straight to tight curls. Several dogs grow thick undercoats while others have nearly no undercoat at all. All coats require using the correct type of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin harm. Your dog may enjoy a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require the lightest of touches. If you're unsure of what types of brushes are best for the job, don't hesitate to ask our experts at Treats on a Leash in Ames Drop in or give us a call at (515) 233-4592 number] to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has.
