At what age can a puppy be bathed?
Perhaps this is one of the first issues faced by the new owner.
The minimum age for bathing a puppy is 3 months. A responsible breeder will not give the puppy to a new home before this time. At 3 months, the baby already has more or less strong immunity, and bathing, if done correctly, will not cause him any harm.

But the matter is most often not in the pet, but in the owner, who, out of ignorance or because of insufficient motivation, makes serious mistakes in the upbringing. In our article we will list the main ones. Take note!
