How To Make Dogs Like Bath in Winter?
Bathing your canine companion in winter can be a big challenge. The cold air chills the bone even when we are dry and have our scarves and coats on. On the other hand, dogs need a bath with their fur coat on and that is cold! But, there are some tips to bathe your canine companion in your home and keep them happy and warm afterwards. Let’s begin.
- Turn up the heater in your bathroom. Make sure your bathroom is warm in order to avoid your dog getting chilled.
- Brush your pet thoroughly and make sure to remove any excess hair and mats before placing your dog in the bathtub.
- You can lay a number of old towels on the bathroom floor, as it will help dry the feet of your dog quickly and it will also absorb any dripping water while drying your dog.
- Fill the bathtub with a few inches of warm water and water should be warm enough to be comfortable for your pet but not too hot to burn his skin.
- You should apply a liberal amount of dog shampoo to your pet and lather him up. Make sure to scrub all the way down to his skin in order to remove any excess body oils or mud from skin.
- Rinse your pet well. Take care to rinse every trace of soap or shampoo from your pet’s coat. After that, use clean water to make sure you leave no residue on the skin of your dog.
- Remove your pet from the bathtub and set him on the towels. You should rub vigorously with a towel in order to remove as much water from his coat as possible.
- After that, turn the hair dryer on the lowest heat setting and blow-dry your pet. However, many dogs initially afraid of the hair dryer, so talk to your pet and reassure him as you dry.
