Instructive Outline for Washing Your Dog

Bathing your dog regularly removes dirt, parasites, and other materials that can get lodged in the fur. Fur, habitat, and other factors affect how often to bathe dogs.

Dog bathing is easier with prep. Small dogs in sink or tub. Cold water baths aren't fun for dogs. Even dogs hate cold water. Bathe your dog in hot weather or water.

The Necessary Steps Prior to Getting Started

Before bathing, brush your dog. Remove tangles and matting before your dog gets wet. Apply artificial tears or mineral oil to each eye. This protects eyes from shampoo.

Get Your Dog Ready for the Bath

Doggie soak. Use a sprayer, pitcher, or bucket. Test your dog's blanket on your arm. Water-resistant dog coats require a deep bath. Eyes and ears. Dogs shed water naturally. 

Wet the Dog Down

Dog-washing. Face, genital, eyes. Shampoo. Conserve shampoo. Shampoo and water combine better. Apply liquid with a spray bottle or plastic cup. Facial features need care.

Shampoo & Shop Your Dog

Dog massage takes time. Shampoo with fingers. Your dog could like it. Mind your feet. If it's medicated shampoo, keep it on for 10 to 15 minutes.

Massage and Scrubbing

Wet your dog's eyes and ears. Wash your dog's coat. Hand-rinsing is slower. Rinse your dog's paws. Rinse dog shampoo. Remove shampoo residue and seal pores with lukewarm or cool water.

Wash Your Dog's Fur

Puppy, shake. Dog-dry. A towel for your dog. Wet dogs shake off with towels. Re-towel. Blow dry dog fur. Clean your dog's eyes of grease. If your dog isn't dry, he'll get muddy again.
