Giving your dog a bath can be an opportunity to bond and show you pet just how much you love them. Natural Dogtails Dog Shampoo is made with soothing essential oils which helps with dry or itchy fur and is suitable for all fur types.
You will want to start off by gently brushing out your dogs entire coat. This is the perfect time to inspect for ticks or sores that may need to be addressed by a vet. Gently rinse your dog with lukewarm water. Once the coat is entirely wet apply Dogtails Dog Shampoo. Starting at the head gently use thumbs and finger tips to get into rolls and deep into the coat paying special attention to areas that are prone to getting dirty like paws.
Avoid getting shampoo in your dogs eyes, ears, nose and mouth. Carefully wash the head and face with a damp moist cloth. Many dogs ears are prone to infection if too much water gets inside. You will want to only use a damp cloth to gently clean around the mouth and ear area.
Rinse your dog entirely until nothing but clear water runs from the coat. Shampoo residue can cause irritation following a bath. Once water runs off clear you will want to rinse the entire coat one last time.
Dry your dog with a soft Dogtails Plush Microfiber Towel by laying it across their back and gently patting dry making sure to pay attention to the ears.
Reward your dog with a treat for being a good sport. You now have a happy and shiny dog that is ready to go out and play so you have to wash them again!
