Unlike cats, dogs rely on their masters to groom them. Every dog owner knows that bathing or grooming a dog isn’t a pleasurable experience for their furry friends. Humans often having to chase, bribe or even wrestle their dogs in order for them to be cleaned.
- First, loosen dead skin and dirt by using a soft bristle brush (like those made for puppies) made of rubber or plastic then use a brush to take out dead hair.
- Put a bath mat on the floor to prevent your pooch from slipping before you soak him. Use a hand-held shower head, a large pitcher or plastic container will do fine to soak your dog in water from head to tail. Lather then thoroughly rinse staying away from ears, eyes and nose.
- This is a good time to check your dog’s ears for odors or dirt. Use a vet-approved solution on a cotton ball to clean the ears. DO NOT insert the cotton into the canal.
- Use a large towel or even a dryer on low heat to dry your dog,
