10 Steps To Give Your Dog The Best Bath

March 20, 2023

With National Puppy Day coming up on March 23, here are 10 essential steps for bathing your dog from our friends at Showers To You Bath Experts:

  1. Brush your dog’s fur to remove any loose hair or mats before starting the bath.
  2. Fill the bathtub or a basin with lukewarm water, making sure it’s not too hot or cold.
  3. Wet your dog’s fur with the water, starting from the neck down to the tail.
  4. Apply a dog-specific shampoo to your dog’s fur, lathering it well to create a rich foam.
  5. Start scrubbing your dog’s fur with your hands or a washcloth, making sure to reach all areas of the body, including the underbelly, legs and paws.
  6. Rinse off the shampoo thoroughly with lukewarm water, making sure to remove all suds from your dog’s coat.
  7. Apply a dog-specific conditioner to your dog’s fur, if desired, and let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing off.
  8. Use a towel to gently dry your dog’s fur, removing as much moisture as possible.
  9. If necessary, use a hairdryer on a low setting to dry your dog’s coat. Be careful not to use a high setting, which can burn your dog’s skin.
  10. Finally, reward your dog with praise and a treat for being a good boy or girl during the bath.

Remember to always use dog-specific products, as human shampoos and conditioners can irritate a dog’s skin. Additionally, never leave your dog unattended during a bath, and be careful not to get water or shampoo in their eyes, ears or nose. —Vita Daily
