Being prepared is key to any good dog bathing ritual. Place your items within easy reach of the tub you will be bathing your dog in. Tubs work great for some people, but small dogs fit well in most laundry sinks or even kitchen sinks!. It is recommended to shower with a garden hose from the veranda or hallway. Next, wear clothes you don’t want to get wet. Pack a snack with a nylon collar and leash. Don’t feed your pup 6 hours before the bath, because everything works best when he’s hungry. Call and feed your puppy, remove the regular collar, attach the nylon collar and leash, and give him another food. Tell him: “I’m taking a bath!” “Isn’t it fun?” Take your pup to the bathroom, show him a favorite toy, and play a little in the bathroom. Remember, you want it to be fun. Now it’s time to use the grass brush and comb. Any knots or knots in your dog’s coat will tighten and deteriorate when wet, so be sure to comb out any knots before turning on the tap. Long coats spray with mummies and brush carefully, so shoulder and make sure you reach the skin.
Attention to areas behind your dog’s ears, where the legs meet, and under the tail, whatever mattes first in lengthy coats. Do not forget to praise and be happy in all this process, keep the stream of sweets. If your dog coat is completely free of compressed and dead hair, non-idol, drowning or going to the pool and go to nylonlin to make something tightly like cock or when you go out, a post from bridge or furniture The heavy farm.

Then the puppy will not be afraid to take a bath and will be rewarded.
If your dog’s eyes are sensitive, use baby shampoo on the hairy area. Do not let the water come into contact with your dog until it has reached the right temperature.
If you are using a garden hose, make sure that the hot water in the hose drains completely. Then fully immerse the cape in water. Avoid eyes and ears and keep admiring. Then put the shampoo in your palm and rub it together or apply the shampoo to the middle of your dog’s back. Apply the shampoo to your dog’s coat and massage in circular motions to make it a short coat, or massage in long motions to stretch the hair into a long coat to avoid tangling impede. Work with the shampoo with a brush. Again, use circular motions for short coats and long brush strokes for long coats. As your puppy scrubs and soaps, he will likely shake his coat and get you wet.
Peeing is a normal reaction in dogs. If he does, don’t blame him! Then it’s time to rinse. Putting shampoo in a coat can make it pick up dirt and cause shivers and make your dog look worse than before you washed him. Using the sprayer or the jug attachment, wash all soap from the back, under the abdomen, between the soles of the feet, etc. When you’re sure you’ve rinsed off all the soap, try again. There is always a lot of soap to remove. Finish it off with a dog conditioner.
After bathing, wrap your dog in a large soft towel and let the fur soak in the water. Do not rub the coat as wet hair can easily become tangled. After you dry the pup, he starts shaking again, but it dries a little. I agree and remain satisfied. If you want your dog to air dry, mesh crates are your best bet. This is also a good time to possibly get them used to a hair dryer, on low, medium heat – and held 6 – 8 inches away from their fur.
