Washing your dog every week is a very complex task in itself. It is never easy no matter how old your dog gets even after all the task is done drying his hair is also not easy because they have this constant habit of moving and jumping here and there. So to make your jobs a bit easy I will list down a few points that you must follow.
WASH WITH WATER:-
This first step is very important you should thoroughly wash his hair with excess of water so that all the hair are wet this process will make the application of shampoo easy and will remove all the dirt from his hair.
The water should be nor too cold as your dog might fall sick especially if he is a pup and the water should be neither too hot as it can cause burning sensation on his skin.
SURFACE SHOULD BE CHECKED:-
Keep in mind the surface shouldn’t be too slippery as dogs often run away here and there when you wash them and due to this they can get injured so always keep in mind that the surface is a bit rough. If this is not possible you can always cover it with some clothes.
This can help get rid off ticks and fleas which are slowly sucking your dog’s blood and making his skin rough. When you have applied the shampoo nicely just brush his hair gently this will also detangle his hair and remove all the hard dry and damaged hair.
Make sure the shampoo you use doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals. While applying shampoo you should see that it doesn’t go in his eyes even it does just wash his eyes with some water.
You should rinse his fur carefully as the left over shampoo can make his hair dry and rough. For this you shouldn’t just wash his hair with water rather rub your hand gently on his body every time you wash him. Due to their thick hair it gets very difficult for the shampoo to come out only with water.
This can take a bit of your time and effort as it takes a lot of time for their hair to get dried. You can always use a hair dryer if your dog let’s you or you can dry them first with a neat cloth and later make them sit in sun because that is obviously the best way to dry his hair.
After the hair gets dried down you can always use some fresh coats for the smell and it’s anti bacterial properties will keep all the bacteria and insects away.
