Having a pet at home is one of the best things that can happen in life and we know that some dogs love water, while for some bathing can be a little more difficult. That is why we will teach you How to Bathe Your Dog at Home Easily and creating a fun environment for our pet.
1. CHOOSE THE RIGHT PLACE
The ideal place to bathe your dog depends a lot on the size of your pet. If your dog is small, you can bathe him in a sink or in a bathtub, just be sure to place a towel on the surface to prevent slipping. In case your dog is medium or large, the ideal is to bathe him in a children’s pool, in the shower, in a bathtub according to his size or in the garden.
2. PREPARE THE BATHROOM
Make sure the water temperature is the same as the dog’s body temperature. Not too hot, not too cold. It is advisable to try to choose a sunny day with a good temperature.
3. GET THE DOG WET
Wet the coat from the neck down. If you have a hand shower flower, it will be more comfortable to wet the dog, or use a jug or bucket of water to wet it. Remember that water should not get into your dog’s ears and also be cautious around the eyes and mouth area.
4. APPLY THE SHAMPOO
After the dog is wet, gently apply the dog shampoo, starting at the neck and working your way down. It is really important to only use gentle dog shampoos and no human shampoos as these can dry out your dog’s skin and cause irritation.
5. DRY IT WELL
Once the bath is over, make sure you have a large enough towel on hand to dry off your dog. Even with the towel, your dog will try to dry himself by shaking the fur off him..
At the end of your dog’s bath you should reward and praise him, if you notice him very nervous while you bathe him, do not hesitate to give him a reward when you are bathing him to calm him down. With these simple steps you already know how to bathe your dog at home easily.
