A healthy dog shines from within with bright eyes, a soft coat, and good weight and muscling. A dull coat can be a warning sign your dog is suffering from poor nutrition, parasites like fleas or worms, food or environmental allergies, or just a lack of adequate grooming. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite tools for ensuring beautiful dog fur, including foods, supplements, grooming tools, and shampoos. Many of these have been very popular with our readers this year!

A minimally-processed food using fish as the main protein source is a great way to boost the omega-3 fatty acids that contribute to gorgeous fur.

Gentle and effective, a slicker brush is an important basic addition to your home grooming arsenal.
A best-seller and perennial favorite among our readers, this tool is especially effective for dogs with a thick double coat.
Slip it on to remove loose fur and get a little bonding time in, too.
Dogs with a hair coat (versus a fur coat) are especially in need of regular bathing and grooming.
Like shampoo—but with an easy form factor.
We love dog shampoos that avoid unnecessary chemical additives, and Earthbath makes some of the best.
