Bathing Your Dog
While small dogs can be plopped in the sink or tub for a bath, bigger dogs may need a portable doggie tub or a spritz outside. Either way, here are some tips to help navigate the waters: first, brush before sudsing to remove or loosen any matting or knots from her hair; make sure water is lukewarm and talk calmly to her to ensure she's calm. Use a dog shampoo that agrees with your dog so as not to irritate her skin, rinse well and air dry. Then reward her with a tasty pet treat!
