Keep your dog clean without going through the bathtub
A good hygiene of your dog, as well as a quality food, are very important to ensure his health. And it is the responsibility of the owners to do so!
Occasionally, there may be a situation where you can't bathe your dog or your dog needs to be cleaned, but not thoroughly. Here are some tips to help your dog stay clean!
A wet towel or cloth
If your dog has soiled a part of his body, such as his paws or snout, you can take a soft towel or cloth (don't take any!) and moisten it to clean your furry coat.
If you have also brushed the area before, you will remove the dirt more easily.
Specialized wet wipes
When we say specialized we mean that they are specifically for dogs. You can find them in pet shops and they are made of components that won't harm your dog's skin. Don't use human ones!
With these wipes you will be able to remove dirt, for example, from their pads, once you return from a walk in the street.
Dry shampoo for dogs
One of the most commonly used options to keep your dog clean without going through the water jet.
These special dry shampoos for our pets will make them look perfect.
To use one of them, first brush his furry. Then, moisten a soft towel or cloth with lukewarm water and apply the dry spray shampoo over it and then run it over the animal's body. Repeat as needed.
Finish the dry bath by brushing the dog again in order to remove the remains of the product.
Deodorants and colognes for dogs
If the problem is that your dog's smell is stronger than normal, for example, if it has been wet on a rainy day, then we recommend other options.
First, if your dog is wet, remember to dry it well with a towel and dryer so it doesn't catch a cold.
Then, apply some SPECIAL dog cologne to give it another smell. Ask your vet if it's appropriate for you, because if your pet has skin problems, it won't be the right thing to do.
Another widely used method of keeping your dog clean is to make a homemade deodorant.
This will consist of a part of apple vinegar and two parts of water that will be mixed in a spray. However, if your dog has sensitive skin or a wound, don't apply it!
Finally, remember to check areas where your dog spends a lot of time, such as his bed.
If he's left his dirt or bad smell there, it won't do any good to keep your dog clean if he's going to roll around in that place and get bad smells again. Wash his bed often so that this doesn't happen!
