The Importance of Choosing the Proper Shampoo for Your Pooch
You may be enticed to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The problem 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 perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a full bath.
Think of the idea your pooch is very 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 evident why you really need coat products that are made to address these challenges. Human-grade shampoo won't include the correct components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at ShakaPaw stock a full range of dog grooming products that suit your needs to keep your dog smelling nice and looking good.
Use the Right Brushes and Combs for Your Dog's Coat

All coats demand using the right kind of brush to minimize pulling out healthy hair and prevent skin damage.
