The Importance of Finding the Right Shampoo for Your Dog:
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require 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.
Think of the idea that your pup is ikely to roll in the garbage, get fleas or ticks, or get dry, scratchy patches, and it quickly becomes evident why you really need coat products that are created to tackle these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. At The Barkery, we stock a variety of dog grooming supplies that meet your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
Dog coats come in a range of textures with hair follicles ranging from pin straight to tight curls. Therefore, it's vital to use the right brushes and combs for your dog's coat. Some dogs grow thick undercoats while others have practically no undercoat whatsoever. All coats need the right type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin injury. Your dog may appreciate a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and require 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 The Barkery in Tewksbury. Stop in or give us a call at (978) 858-3644 to discuss the kind of coat and particular issues your dog has. We'll show you what brushes and combs are the very best for your dog.
