Dogs - Bathing

The most important thing to remember when bathing your dog is that the dogs' skin is delicate and much more prone to drying out. That's why you need to get a shampoo formulated for dogs. It will remove dirt but not the essential oils for the coat. To prevent soap-burn in the eye, smear the eye area with a little vaseline, or administer a drop of mineral oil in each eye. After you wet the dog thoroughly, take a nozzle and spray that will make the bath much easier. Using a shampoo formulated for dogs (the pH balance of human shampoos is wrong), lather and rinse its head carefully, keeping soap and water out of its eyes and ears. Lather and rinse the rest of its body. Relather and rinse any other areas that had stubborn stains. Vinegar and lemon are prohibited because they are acidic and will damage the dog's coat and skin. Dry your dog gently with towels, and keep it indoors.
