Bathing your puppy for the first time is one of the sweetest moments any pet parent can experience. However, your puppy needs to be at least 6 weeks old and using the best puppy shampoo and conditioner keeps your pup’s sensitive skin and coat healthy. In addition, we also recommend consulting a Vet before your pup’s first bath. In today’s blog, let us look at why you shouldn’t use regular dog shampoo for your puppy.
Sulphate-Free & High Quality!
Whenever we use a shampoo, chances are they generally contain ‘Sulphates’. They are a known skin irritant to puppies and dogs with sensitive skin, however sulphates in shampoos are fine for healthy and normal coats. We also don’t recommend sulphates for ageing dogs.
Apart from avoiding harmful chemicals like Parabens and Sulphates, it is also important to choose a puppy shampoo and conditioner in terms of the quality of ingredients used. Stay away from ones with strong perfumes and concentrated artificial fragrances as they can easily irritate sensitive skin.
Why Wassup Pup?
Wassup pup is a shampoo that is not only perfect for pups but also for dogs that are aging and dogs that have sensitive skin. It’s a great moisturizing shampoo for fresh, clean and healthy puppies and the best part about this shampoo is that it is completely sulphate and paraben free. The calming effects of Lavender along with Lemongrass’s natural deodorizing effects makes this a very functional shampoo overall.
Dry Shampoo To The Rescue!
Is your pup’s fear of water making you consider further cutting back on the number of baths you provide to your pooch? Captains Zacks ‘Tick’et to Fleadom’ offers a potential solution for you, especially during this monsoon season! ‘Bing on the shine’ is our second dry dog shampoo variant that makes your dog’s coat manageable and is a ‘quick fix for instant shine’. These products along with Captain Zack’s Scent’sationally yours dog cologne spray are completely sulphate-free and can be used on pups that are above 6 weeks old (again, consulting your Vet for pups these young is recommended).
Please Do Not Use Human Shampoos
Avoid using regular human products on your pooch under any circumstance. Since human skin and scalp are more acidic than a dog’s, these shampoos have stronger pH balancing agents not meant for your dog’s skin. He/she needs a milder shampoo and something that is more alkaline.
P.S. Please be patient and do not yell at your pup if he resists grooming; you’ll just make him hate baths in the long term if you do this.
