Introduction

Since there are different coat types, we can't advice you on which shampoo is the best to use. Make sure to use a dog shampoo. Dogs' skin is a different pH than peoples' so it's not a good idea to use human shampoo on a dog. Clean your brushes and comns on a regular base, this prevents the coat from getting static.

Keep in mind that it takes almost 2 years for every hair you pull out during bathing and grooming to grow back to normal length.

Set out all the items you need during bathing, and make sure they are within your reach while bathing the dog. This prevents the dog from jumping out of the tub to follow you when you want to go get your stuff.

The necessities:

Shampoo
Conditioner
Watering pot or empty bottle
Towels
Measuring cup
Whisk

Remove the rubber bands from the dog's top knots. Best do this with special band removal scissors.

Put cotton wool in the ears of the dog, to prevent water from getting into the ears. This could cause ear infections.

 

Make sure the water has the correct temperature before you start rinsing your dog. Too hot water will cause burns, and too cold water will be very uncomfortable for your dog. When the water has the right temperature, begin by thoroughly wetting down the coat.

Slowly pour the mixed shampoo over the dog. Squeeze or 'stroke' the shampoo into the coat. Do not work it back and forth like you would do with the hair on your head, this contributes to matting and knotting. If your dog is really durty, you can rince out the shampoo and you repeat these steps.

 

Rince out thoroughly. Left in shampoo can cause itsch and irritations

 

Take the the watering pot or bottle with mixed conditioner and pour the mix over the coat. Follow the same steps as when using a mix of shampoo. Rince out thoroughly. In case the coats tends to mat easily, you can leave in some conditioner

 

Lift the dog out of the tub and let it shake the water of it's coat. After that, you take a towel and your sqeeze the coat dry. Don't rub the towel, this will create new knots. Continue using the 'stroking', squeezing the hair, and patting methods for best results
