How Should I Give My Dog A Bath?

Most dogs would rather skip bath time, but bathing plays an important role in the health of your dog’s coat and skin, helping to keep your dog clean and free of dirt and parasites.

-Use lukewarm water. Dog skin is different from ours, and hot water can burn dogs more easily. Bathwater should never be hotter than what you’d run for a human baby. Keep it even cooler for large-breed dogs who can easily overheat.
-Brush your dog before a bath. Matted hair holds water, leaving your dog with irritated skin. If you can’t brush or cut the mats out yourself, take your dog to a professional groomer.
-Use dog shampoo. It dries their skin less than people shampoo. Work the shampoo into a gentle lather and massage it all over your dog’s body, being careful not to get soap in their eyes.
-Rinse well. Any soap left in their fur can irritate your dog’s skin once they’re dry. Rinse, rinse, and repeat the rinse.

Got A Dog?
Washing your dog in a refinished tub, it’s a good idea to put down a rubber bathmat or towel on the tubs bottom. One so they will feel secure and safe. We don’t won’t them to dig into the refinished tubs surface. Also, place a towel over the tubs rail so when they climb out they won’t dig into the tubs rail with their toenails when getting out.
