5 Tips for Bathing Your Furry Friend!

5 Tips for Bathing Your Furry Friend!

February 11, 2021

Bath time can be stressful, especially for dog owners. Just the sound of the shower or bath has your furry friend running, scurrying, and sometimes even hiding. It makes you want to skip bath time altogether.

So how can you make bath time fun for you and your dog?

Here's 5 easy ways you can make bath time a fun time!

1. MAKE IT A PAWS-ITIVE EXPERIENCE

Ease your pup into bath time by making it a positive experience for them. Reward your furry pal every time they get in the bath. Let your dog bring their favorite toy with them, or offer them treats when they behave for you.

You can also help by getting in the bath with them. Show your furry friend that baths are a fun time; play with the water, sing a lil' song, or give them some cuddles. This will help your dog understand that baths are something to enjoy, and not something to be scared of.


2. BRUSH BEFORE THE BATH

Save yourself the trouble and brush your dog before they even get in the bath. Brushing your puppy pal helps get rid of any tangles and matting in their fur. Matted fur is able to hold water, irritating your dog's skin. Gently brush or cut off any matting you can find on your dog's fur. This saves you the trouble of detangling them when wet.


3. CHECK THE WATER TEMPERATURE

You might like warm baths, but the same can't be said for your furry friend. Bathe your dog in lukewarm water. Some larger breeds tend to overheat and may need slightly colder baths. Other than that, keep your water just right. Think of it as bathing a human newborn or child - not too hot and not too cold.


4. GATHER YOUR SUPPLIES

There's nothing more annoying than having your dog sopping wet only to realize you've left their shampoo on the kitchen counter. Don't even think of leaving your dog unattended just to go and grab that shampoo. Make sure you've got all your pet supplies ready and within arm's reach. This saves you time and prevents any doggy bath accidents.


5. GET THE RIGHT SHAMPOO

Don't use human shampoo for your furry friend. Shampoo for humans has a different PH level and can irritate your dog's skin. Ask your local veterinarian what shampoo works best for your dog. If your dog has any skin condition, they're likely to need specialty shampoos. Be sure to work with your vet to find the best shampoo to address your dog's condition, and remember to follow the instructions they give you.
