How to bathe a puppy?

Depending on the size and your desire, you can wash your puppy in the bathroom or basin. The water level should not be too high. It is enough that it covers the paws or reaches the elbow joints.
Optimum water temperature: 35 ° C.

It is best to stock up on a partner and wash the baby together: additional support will not hurt. In addition, it is easier to soap and rinse. To prevent the puppy from slipping and accidentally bruising, put a rubber mat or towel on the bottom of the bathtub.

Talk gently with your puppy, do not make sudden movements, be careful. The atmosphere should be calm. This is very important for the formation of the puppy’s attitude to water procedures and his trust in you!

First you need to gently moisten the wool, then soap it with a special shampoo and rinse: thoroughly, until creaking. If you also use the conditioner, apply it on wet washed wool. The scheme is the same as with us when washing our hair. Before swimming, carefully read the instructions for use of shampoos and conditioners and follow it.

Do not direct the shower into the dog’s nose. If you need to wash your face, moisten it from below under a weak pressure or wash it with your hand. Protect eyes, nose and ears from shampoo and water.

After bathing, thoroughly wipe off the puppy and preferably blow dry. Make sure that the baby does not freeze and does not fall under a draft, otherwise it may get sick.
