Tips for Bathing Your Dog
When you prepare to bathe your dog, make sure to choose a quiet time when your dog is relaxed. If your dog has never had a bath before, then it’s a good idea to enlist another person to help you. Go slowly, introducing your dog to water gradually, and use minimal shampoo during your dog’s first bath so that you can rinse quickly and keep the bath short.
As you bathe your dog, frequently test the water’s temperature to make sure that it’s not too hot or too cold. Never spray your dog with water directly in the face, and be careful to keep shampoos and conditioners out of your dog’s eyes.
To keep bathing your dog manageable, make it a pleasant experience for your dog. After the bath, give your dog a reward that he enjoys, such as some playtime or treats. If you can stay relaxed and happy during the bath, you can convey that same sense of relaxation and enjoyment to your dog.
Whether you bring your dog in for bathing at Bed and Biscuit Austin, or you decide to bathe your dog at home, these quality products can have your dog looking and feeling great.
