The Importance of Finding the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
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 made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have distinct hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Consider the fact your pooch 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 need coat products that are developed to address these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at Treats on a Leash sell a complete range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat

All coats demand using the best kind of brush to reduce pulling out healthy hair and stop skin harm.
