When it comes to bathing our precious newborns, we now take extra precautions to ensure their comfort. Shouldn’t we do the same for our furry friends?

Bath time is also vital for your favorite furry buddy since it keeps him clean, smelling fresh, and flea-free. As much as it may appear to be a no-brainer to give your four-legged buddy a splashy good time, it’s important to keep the following in mind while giving your four-legged companion a bath.

How frequently should I bathe my dog?

It is recommended to regularly bathe, brush, and inspect your dog. Once a month should be sufficient, depending on how thick the fur is and how greasy the skin becomes. If your dog needs further odor management, he may require a wash every week or every few days. Dogs’ skin naturally contains oils that help prevent dirt from adhering to it. Excessive bathing, like people, can create skin and coat issues by washing away your dog’s protective skin oils.

Sinks are ideal for washing pups, whilst bathtubs and showers are better suited for medium to large dogs. Surprisingly, many dogs become frightened when there is running water and loathe the sound of it. Run the water (in the tub or handheld shower) before placing him in to help calm them down and train them to appreciate bath time.

That’s fantastic for individuals who have the luxury of space, such as a backyard or garden. Your dog will enjoy having more space to romp about in.

What is the ideal temperature for my dog’s water?

The ideal temperature is 37 degrees Celsius. Many people either use too cold or too hot water to shower their dogs. Warm water can be unpleasant and, in some situations, hazardous for the dog. You might accidentally overheat or burn their skin. Furthermore, hot water raises the danger of drying out your dog’s skin, causing long-term pain and irritation, which is why you should only bathe him once a month or so. When the temperature is excessively hot, you would expect that utilizing cold water would help to chill them down. However, dogs, like people, do not appreciate cold water as much as we do.
