Rrrrrrruuuufff!!!! (Hi friends)
We have now had Clyde for about 5 weeks but it feels like he has always been apart of our family.
One routine we have every week is to give Clyde a bath. I read online that you can give a puppy/dog a bath as many times as often as you want as long as they do not have a sensitivity to their skin. Paul and I find that with Clyde going on 2-3 walks a day by the end of the week he is in high need of a bath! Also, since I love beauty products I thought I would show you and give a review of what we use for Clyde.
All of the products are from Burts Bees dog line. right now we use the puppy shampoo for Clyde. We also purchased the shampoo for him for when he is no longer a puppy that is all natural and calming for him as well. One great product that we recently got is the Tear Stain Remover. I like putting a few drops of these around his eye area to clean the gunk away. This will be especially useful as Spring comes with pollen and other allergens.
The most used product, the 2 in 1 Tearless Shampoo and Conditioner for puppies, is well loved by Paul and I for Clyde’s baths.
Here are a few reasons why it is our favorite!
- The shampoo is gentle and calming which is great for Clyde as he is anxious during bath time.
- The smell of the shampoo is wonderful. When he is done he smells so good!
- Also, the smell of the shampoo is not too girly. This makes it versatile for girl and guy pups.
- The shampoo is sensitive enough that it has not dried out Clyde’s skin at all.
- The bottle is large and can make it awkward when trying to hold your pup and squeeze some of the shampoo out at the same time.
Below are the step by steps for how we give Clyde a bath.
- Clean your kitchen sink. This is where we like to give Clyde a bath but if you have a more efficient place feel free to use that.
- But about 3 inches of warm water in your kitchen sink.
- Add one teaspoon of the shampoo and swirl it into the water.
- Have a cup handy to since your dog off with.
- Put your dog in the warm water.
- Pour water all over him.
- Take the shampoo and lather it into your dogs fur. Make sure to watch out for his eyes and ears. Also, watch out for any known sensitive areas your dog might have.
- Once lathered, take the cup and pour water over their whole body until there is no more shampoo present.
- Once completed you can towel dry your dog.
- As an added step, you can even blow dry him/her if they like to be blow dried.
How do you like to give your dog a bath? Do you have any tips for me??
