It is normal for people to shower every day but what about dogs? An interesting fact is that most dogs sweat through their tongue rather than their skin like humans do, so they don’t need to be bathed as often.
- Try to set a routine to ensure your dog stays clean and healthy.
- If your dog needs to be cleaned up after playtime, or a walk outside, you can partially wash them using other alternatives to a full bath. Try wiping them down with a damp towel or use bath wipes or spray-on shampoo.
- Always check how they act after you give them a bathe. If they are scratching themselves, it might indicate that you bath them too frequently or the shampoo might be too harsh on their skin.
We’d love to hear about your dog bathing routine. Please share your experience as a dog sitter or dog owner and give any tips, advice and guidance about how to make this experience more positive for the dog and their humans.
