Your drain but no matter how good you Brush them that shed hair is going to Come out so you want to grab a hair Catcher Um just to try to catch as much as Possible so that you're not clogging Your drain with pet hair and then you Want your shampoo so don't use human Shampoo or human grooming products ever On your pets dogs have a different pH Their skin has a different pH and so You're going to want to make sure that You have a shampoo specifically for dogs The first thing you're going to do is Get the water temperature right Now dogs are more sensitive than we are To eat so you want to make sure you have Lukewarm water Um they sense heat stronger than we do So water that you think might be uh you Know warm or good like shower Temperature for you is actually going to Be too warm for your pets so just get a Lukewarm water and then you're going to Rinse your dog and again you know this Device makes it really easy to do so That's why I recommend it you're going To rinse your dog all over Now usually I close the door so CD can't Get out but for the purpose of this Video we're not doing that so I'm going To kind of give her like a just a nice Short Quick run through the bath and then I'll

Give her a complete bath once I'm done With you guys so once they're thoroughly Rinsed you want to make sure you rinse All their legs all the way underneath And up here by their head and neck as Well Um I like again the Miu Pat shower Because I can get up in there you can See that it bends I can get in there for Their neck I can get under their belly And get them rinsed really easily so That makes it nice for me Once you're done you're going to put a Line of dog shampoo down your pet's back And you're just going to work that in Really well you want to make sure that You're working out all the way down to Their skin get your hands in there you Want to wash again all down the legs Underneath their belly get up into their Armpits making sure that you're getting Every single part of a bare body So what I like to do is apply a small Amount of shampoo to my hands once I've Done their back I just put a little on My hands and then we can rub it together Like you would human shampoo and just Get in underneath their belly make sure You're getting like I said in those Cracks nooks and crannies the armpits Every area of your dog's body and you're Going to want to keep working the Shampoo through their coat for 10 to 15 Minutes and that'll really allow it to

Get in get down to their skin clean all Those oils that are necessary while if You've got a dog shampoo it's going to Be keeping the pH balance of their skin And keeping those necessary oils To really clean them well and give them A nice healthy shine When you're doing your dog's head and Neck you're going to want to stay away From the face so do underneath the neck Do the sides do the top You want to stay away from you can do Around the ears if you want but you Don't want any water getting inside the Ear so stay away from that area stay Away from the head because once you Rinse that's going to run right down on Your dog's face and you don't even dog Shampoo made specifically for dogs you Don't want it anywhere near their eyes Their mouth their nose so what I would Recommend is giving your dog a bath Completely like this from kind of the Neck down and then when they get out use Grooming wipes or a washcloth to clean Around their face and underneath their Chin So once you've been doing that for 10 to 15 minutes it's time to rinse this is a Really important step of bathing your Dog because you want to make sure that You're rinsing everything really Thoroughly Leaving any soap residue in your pet's

Fur is going to have that uh build up And it's going to lead to itching And it could even actually cause a rash If you don't make sure that you're Rinsing well so you want to make sure You're just getting all of that out Running your fingers through making sure That all of that soap Is out if you're going back through Rinsing your fingers and you're seeing Any soap left keep going back and rinse Rinse rinse until it's all gone Once you've done the beating part it's Time to dry your pup I have done this Video which you can check out on how to Dry your dog and it talks more in depth About drawing your dog with a towel or Using a either a professional dog dryer If you can afford one of those Um or just a human hair dryer either way If you're using a dryer you want it on The lowest setting possible as I Mentioned dogs are a lot more sensitive To heat than we are so when you put a Dryer on high heat for your hair and it Doesn't burn your skin it may burn your Dog So be very very careful again check out That video guide if you're considering Using a dryer with your dog I prefer to Use a towel as you can tell I think Sadie likes it better too because I'm Just rubbing her and petting her and Kind of massaging her as I go along and

When you're drying your dog you want to Make sure again just like when you wash Go through all those areas that you wash Get in underneath the armpits get all Those little nooks and crannies under The belly make sure you're drying the Legs make sure that you're drawing the Pause Because your dog's been standing in the Water this whole time so lift the paws Up give those Paws a nice little dry Now as I mentioned you want to try to Make sure that no water gets in the air But if they do just take a dry piece of The towel or drywall cloth and gently Dry inside the ears you don't want to Press down really hard just make sure You get the ear flap dry inside there a Little bit and all around the outside of The ear flap you're drying underneath Here now you can click the link below The video for our extensive dog grooming Guide for some how-to tips and tricks For grooming your dog at home if you're Looking for more information on the Entire grooming process if you guys have Any questions at all feel free to email Us at any time and be sure to click Below and like And subscribe to our Channel and that way you won't miss any Future content thanks for watching guys Foreign [Music]
