The bathroom and your dog: everything you need to know

Your dog knows what it's like to live life to the fullest: rolling around in the mud, running around the park, chasing the pigeons and splashing around in the river are some of his ideas for fun. That's why dogs require a good bath from time to time to leave them new and soft as a stuffed animal. But, how often should the dog be bathed? And what is needed? We see it below.

How often should a dog be bathed?

The answer to this question is not easy, since It will depend on each dog depending on its breed and especially on the length of the coat. For example, dogs with a medium-length coat are recommended to be bathed once every six weeks or so. Dogs with shorter coats, on the other hand, need more frequent baths, while those with longer coats, contrary to what one might expect, need fewer baths.

In addition, dogs need to have a minimum of natural grease to keep their coat in optimal condition, which is why it is highly recommended that the first time you go to the vet with your dog, ask how often you should bathe him. Another possibility is to take him to a dog groomer, where they can not only give him a bath, but also dry his fur and leave it like a brush.

What do you need to give him a bath?

Although we have previously seen a selection of highly recommended products for bathing our dog, it can be useful to have a list with the minimum products you will need:

  • Shampoo and conditioner. It is important that they are not for humans, since they are too aggressive and can damage their skin.
  • Water. Obviously, to combine with the shampoo and conditioner and get them out of the fur once it's ready, we need water. It can be in a shower, but a garden hose will do just as well.
  • A place to put your dog during the bath. It seems silly, but a basin, or a baby bath, or even an inflatable pool are extremely useful to avoid making a mess, contain your dog and have extra water to bathe him.
  • Prizes and some toy. You can use them to distract your dog if it is not very bathing.
  • A couple of towels. You have to dry it well at the end of the bath to ensure both that there is no shampoo left and that you are not going to catch a cold.
  • A brush. Brush it before and after bathing to make the fur as shiny and fine as possible, as well as remove knots or even locate ticks.

Tricks to bathe them without drama

dogs love to splash

If your dog is not a big fan of water and every time you want to bathe him, he makes a mess of it, there are a series of tricks that can be useful:

  • Use toys and prizes. We have said it before, we will repeat it again very briefly: distracting your dog with toys and dogs so that they consider bath time as a positive moment is a good idea to gradually get them used to it.
  • Wear a collar and leash. Especially if your baths are outside, like in a patio or garden, it is a very good idea to use a collar and a leash (try to make them waterproof so they don't get damaged). This way you will not only be able to control it better, but you will also prevent it from escaping.
  • Take the opportunity to do it when you are tired. If your pooch has been on a squirrel-chasing spree in the park, a good time to bathe him is when he's tired, so he'll have less energy to resist and may even like it and relax him.
