The Importance of Selecting the Best Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't designed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with specific formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or even dry coat cleansers for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the reality your pooch is very likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are made to address these complications. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct ingredients to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Pure Pet stock a complete range of dog grooming supplies that meet 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 correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and stop skin injury.
