Dog Shampoo, Does It Make a Difference?
Dog Shampoo, Does It Make a Difference?
Having your dog looking their best is what everyone is after. Whether your dog struts around the show ring or just the local dog park, overall appearance matters.
When it comes to shampoos, some contain strong detergents that can end up harming your dog’s coat and irritating their skin. Human grade shampoos should not be used on dogs as the pH level suitable for human hair and dog hair is quite different.
Professional shampoos made specifically for dogs, such as those from Plush Puppy, are specially formulated to be gentle on the skin while giving you the results you seek for that ultimate healthy looking coat. For example, our Natural Body Building Shampoo is designed to give a fuller coat appearance like that required of a Poodle or double coated breeds like the Malamute thanks to its formula of wheat protein and wheat starch that volumise hair.
So, should you be using professional dog shampoo and how can they help your dog’s coat? Read on to discover how our Plush Puppy brand of dog shampoos, can really bring your dog’s coat to life!
It’s common for dogs with white coats or patches of whiter areas to experience staining on their coat over time. Sometimes this comes from their environment, or it’s the result of sun fading and reddening.
Our Herbal Whitening Shampoo works brilliantly in reducing yellowing or warm tones in white coats or white areas of the coat without bleaching or lightening. This is the same for darker colours as it reduces any warm tones hence intensifying the depth of colour.
All coat colours are made of the full spectrum of the colours of the rainbow and first tones to fade are always the blues and purples leaving a reddish, orange overtone to the coat. This is a quick and effective way to give depth back to your blacks and reds without damaging the coat or using an artificial coat colouring. This shampoo will intensify these colours and give a sparkling clear sheen. It negates unwanted warm tones from sun fading or reddening in the coat and adds back the lost cool tones to the coat.
Essentially, whitening shampoo can reduce the warm tones in any colour of coat, and boost the cool tones that your dog’s hair may have lost through fading with age. The rich violet toner in our shampoo is the magical ingredient that achieves toning. Both safe and effective, our Herbal Whitening Shampoo brings back lustre and sheen without the use of bleach or other harmful chemicals allowing your dog to shine!
For those dogs with a coat that needs increased shine, this dog shampoo is a must have for those with short coat breeds like the Weimaraner and Rottweiler. We use the natural oil extracted from henna stalks to condition and add shine to your dog’s coat leaving it shiny and healthy.
Black coats are beautiful and seeing them glimmer and shine is breath-taking. However, overtime a dog’s dark coat can fade, losing its winning, sleek appeal. Our Black Opal shampoo returns depth and tone to your dog’s coat without dyeing it. For maximum effect, apply to a pre-shampooed clean coat, and engage in multiple applications for a darker effect.
Not all dog coats are the same though, and if you own a Terrier of any kind, you’ll know what we mean! A textured coat is often one of the things that are favoured by Terrier owners, and if you’re looking for a little extra texture in your Terriers coat, then we have just the thing. Our Texture+ Shampoo is herbal based and primarily derived from Gentian root, Hay Flower and Lemon Balm leaf (just to name a few!) that will not only cleanse but also nourish and vitalise the skin.
There are many benefits to owning a dog and caring for your very own takes some research to get right. Coat care is no different. If you’re looking for more information on finding the right shampoo (or any other coat care product) for your dog, or breed, then we offer a virtual library in both our Breed Grooming Articles and Educational Articles where you will find some valuable tips on grooming and coat care.
At Plush Puppy, we are a leading provider of professional dog shampoos in Australia and offer online shopping across our entire range.
Our products are formulated using high levels of naturally derived ingredients that define what the outcome or result of using that specific shampoo will do. This is why Plush Puppy has such a vast range of very specific shampoos, each providing a result-based formulation.
Happiness is a healthy coat!
