Phew...does someone need a good scrub in the tub? It’s no secret most dogs love a dip in the pool or a splash the sea, but when it comes to bath time, they’re nowhere to be found. Here are some tips on the how to make bathing fun – so you can keep puppy looking and smelling their healthy best.
There are no hard and fast rules here. Anywhere from once a week to a few times a year. It’s really depends on your dog’s lifestyle, skin and hair. Long, wiry and curly hair is more likely to bring lawn, bugs and local flora home compared to a smooth, short silky mane.
If you have a very young puppy, wait until they are five weeks old before giving them their first bath.
