The Importance of Choosing the Best Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The issue is, human-grade shampoo isn't developed for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have unique hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with certain formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or maybe dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think of the reality your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, get fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes apparent why you need coat products that are created to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the proper ingredients to de-scent, repair dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Horses & Hounds sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking fantastic.
Use the Appropriate Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat

All coats need using the correct type of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin injury.
