The Importance of Picking the Perfect Shampoo for Your Pooch
You could be tempted 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 special hair and skin needs that require shampoos and conditioners with distinct 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 full bath.
Consider the fact your pooch is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy spots, and it quickly becomes obvious why you really need coat products that are made to handle these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't have the correct components to de-scent, heal dryness, or get rid of unwanted hitchhikers. We at Healthy Hounds Canine & Feline Nutrition stock a complete range of dog grooming products that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking great.
Use the Perfect 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. Your dog may take pleasure in a good scratching with the brush, or they may be thin-skinned and demand the lightest of touches.
