Usually in the summer I enjoy washing my dog Naye-Naye. It’s so fun and exciting, and I know she enjoys it as well. Washing your dog is a great style of exercising for you and your dog. When your dog is a fresh and clean, and smells all good, it makes you feel good as well. Plus it makes you dog very happy on the inside and the out.
When my dog needs to be bathed her self esteem goes down. She’s quiet and looks sad all the time,but after I give her bath or she goes and gets her oil treatment, she’s all happy and cheerful. This is why we always keep her groomed and well cared.
Bath tub/filled with WARM water
Dog perfume/ optional
Set the Bath water
You set the bath water not to high or low. Depending on the size of your dog.
Note: Make sure the water isn’t too hot or cold
Remove any Accesories on your dog
Make sure you take off any accesories off your dog, like collar, flea collar,etc…
Place Your Dog in the Tub
Put your dog in the tub gently, because they are sensitive.
Get Your dog a little wet
I usually get an old and used face towel, and get my dog damp so it won’t be hard to wash her.
Begin to Scrub you dog with shampoo
What I usually do is put the shampoo on her face towel and go through her paws, tail,belly, face,body, etc..
Cut all Matted parts/ Brush your dog
Make sure you are very gentle for this part. When you brush your dog, any matted parts make sure you cut off.
Note: Don’t get to close to your dog’s skin while cutting, they will be badly injured.
Rinse off your Dog
Rinse all of the dead fur, and shampoo off your dog.
Note: Dogs are like humans if you leave shampoo in your hair your scalp will itch, same thing with dogs. This is why you must rinse them off throughly.
Drain Water/ Take your dog out
After you make sure your dog is rinsed off well enough drain the water and take them out of the tub.
Note: Since my dog is very small I use an old towel and wrap her in it.
Blow Dry (Optional)
Once I take my dog out I get my blow dryer and blow dry her fur so she won’t get sick.
Note: If you decide to use a blow dryer make sure that the temperature isn’t too hot or cold. It MUST be warm so you won’t scold your dog with the heat or get them sick if its too cold.
Spray Doggy Perfume/ Getting her Dressed (Optional)
My dog has a special perfume for dogs and after I bathe her I spray it on her so she can smell really nice. After that, we like to dress up our dog. So we put back on her collar, any bows we want, and any clothes for the day. (Depending on the weather)
