Bathing is rarely an enjoyable pasttime both for dogs and their owners, but the fact is that occasional bathing can be beneficial to the overall health of the pet. Here, the owners should remember to introduce showering at early ages of the pet and it should be done slowly as well. Some of them learn how to enjoy showering, while some of them learn how to tolerate them when it is done when the pet is young itself. Here are some of the tips for doing the same:
Brush first: Dogs with double-coated and long hair should have the mats brushed from the coat before bathing. Otherwise, it will be difficult to remove the mat. A hose can be used in your backyard for showering your little pet. There are different brushes available for this purpose in pet grooming stores and some of them are sold online as well. It has been found that those animals that are brushed regularly can stay healthier against parasites. But, frequently showering can remove the oil content that is naturally present in the coat. Even, it can cause over production of oil, which in turn can make the coat smelling as well. You can make use of pre-moistened wipes or instant dry shampoos available in the market and it can remove the bad odor. Where to bathe? You can do this in the backyard of your home and there are dog-grooming tubs available in the market and they are sold with convenient nozzle for rinsing. If your pet is bigger, it can stand on the ground when bathing. If you are intending to do it indoors, a hand-held shower can be used. If your pet is little, it can be made to bath in the kitchen sink itself. You can also take your dog to the grooming salon as well.
