7 Common Mistakes You Make While Bathing Your Dog

For most of us, taking a shower or bath is often a calming experience. For our pets, however, the bathroom can be anything but relaxing. Between water, noise, confinement, scrubbing and foam, it is no wonder why your cat or dog may sprint in the other direction of the bathtub.

Incorrect Water temperature.

So how do you know the right temperature? Spray the mouthpiece on your forearm first, as you would if you gave a baby a bath. The skin area is more sensitive to temperature than your hands.

Rough sprayer

The easiest way to bathe your cat or dog is with a handheld showerhead or faucet tip in a tub or sink (if you have one, there is no need to fill the tub or sink with water when you bathe your Pet), but the sound of strong running water combined with water pressure can scare and annoy your pet.

Instead of spraying the water directly on your skin, try to keep your pet calm by letting the water hit the back of the hand first while.

Incorrect shampoo selection.

Do not automatically take your own shampoo, even if it is a “totally natural” solution or a soft baby shampoo. “The skin of a pet has a pH balance different from that of humans.”

Poor application of soap.

Activate the soap in your dog’s hair with your hands and fingers for four minutes. Start with your pet’s legs and advance to your face (the most sensitive area). Wipe your face with a cotton ball or wipe and be careful to avoid your eyes.

Bad brushing technique.

You should brush your dog before and after a bath, but only if you regularly brush it at least three times a week. Brushing can be painful and uncomfortable if there are mates or knots on your pet’s skin. “This can turn the toilet into a negative.”

Expedited drying technique

Make sure you have towels ready before the bath (the last thing you want is a soaked pet wetting your house!) And, if you have a dog, have a few towels on the floor and a list to cover.

Bathe it too often.

Dogs are naturally prepared, so you do not need to bathe your pet more than once a month. Too many baths can actually remove the natural oils in your pet’s coat and cause skin irritation. Talk to your veterinarian to determine the best grooming schedule and the best type of shampoo for your pet’s breed and activity level.

Short and brief. WELL DONE!!!!!

Well in fact, tests have shown the pH levels in dog and 'human' shampoos to be virtually no different. Especially with cheaper ones. Also, Yorkshire terriers for instance need regular bathing because they don't have fur, they have hair and it gets dirty quickly. Ours is bathed once a week with either coconut shampoo or dog shampoo (flea) and a load of conditioner. She is lovely and shiny and smells gorgeous. Our other two dogs are bathed about twice a year in comparison.
