You will need:
- 1 bucket with warm water
- 1 dry towel
- 1 wet towel
- 1 brush
- Regular shampoo for dogs
Step 1: Make sure you have the right shampoo
Using a regular all natural Dog shampoo is best. Do not use human shampoo or bar soap, laundry soap or dish soap as they can irritate the skin of your Super Puppy and cause allergies.
Step 2: Brush it and shake it
You can use a normal wet towel or one of those babies wipes to remove excess dirt and dust. Then brush it to remove dead hair and again remove more dirt.
Step 3: Wet your dog with warm water, neither cold nor hot
If it is cold you can bathe it with warm water but avoid hot water as it can damage your skin and on the other hand cause a cold due to the change in temperatures. It begins to wet it from the neck to the tail. At the beginning of the bath omit the head. Do not use the hose directly, you have to take care of the water and for this it is best to use buckets. This way we can control the quantity and avoid waste.
Step 4: Apply the shampoo
Apply some shampoo (the amount varies according to the size of the dog and the length of the hair). It is always better that you need to apply more shampoo to apply a lot too much at the beginning (it will cost you a lot to rinse it).
Step 5: Cover your dog’s body very well
Make sure that no shampoo or water falls directly into the ear canal. You can then clean the ears and the ear pavilion with damp cotton. Do not forget to wash the legs and between the pads and fingers.
Step 6: Rinse, rinse and rinse again
All the hair must be free of shampoo. When there are no more shampoo residues, you will notice that the water runs smoothly and freely on your dog. Leaving residue could cause itching and burning.
Step 7: Let it shake
When wet, dogs feel that need to shake immediately. If you want to avoid splashing too much water, wrap his back with a towel. After it is shaken, dry it very well with the towel. If your dog is left and you want it, you can use a hair dryer but you must use it in air at normal temperature (do not use hot air) and move it at least 30 centimeters away from your dog’s body to avoid drying out its skin. If you use a dryer, do not put it near his ears.
