Tips for Pet Bathing

If you have a small dog, then you can easily bath him. But if you have big, aggressive dog, it will be a difficult task

If you have a small dog, then you can easily bath him. But if you have big, aggressive dog, it will be a difficult task. Bathing these kinds of dogs is always a problem for everyone. If you want to easily bath your dog, then try following the tips below:

Prepare-Gather all the things you need first.  A rubber mat with suction-cup bottom big enough for you and your dog to stand on, shampoo, and towel should be put in the bathroom or wherever you plan to work. Tub showers seem to work best, and those with a hose that connect from the shower head allow you to put the water when and where you need it with dead on accuracy, thus keeping the dog wet and you dry.

Water Temperature-You can experiment with temperature, which works best-doing this after you get your dog in.  Make the water lukewarm rather than icy cold for both your sakes.

Bathing your dog- Calmly place your dog in the bathtub. Avoid making any sudden movements, sudden noises, or anything that is likely to startle your dog. The first thing you do is rinse your dog and get his fur nice and wet. Once this is done, you can apply shampoo. When you apply shampoo, lather his coat thoroughly, making sure to rub the suds well into his fur. One thing that you must make sure that you don't do is get any of the suds in your dog's eyes, as this is one sure-fire way to make it angry.

Drying your dog- Once bath time is over you need to make sure your dog is dry. Take a fresh towel and gently rub over all his fur, patting down to make sure all the moisture is removed. Whilst you are drying your dog it is a good idea to keep talking to your dog, offer praises in a gentle voice and keep encouraging him. This will help create an association that bath time is fun and it will further help make future bath times all that much easier and stress free.
