Re: [shanann] when should i start to bath my puppy?
[In reply to]
Just wondering where did you get your pup/dog from? Have you check this with the breeder or to the one that you have it from?
Anyway, I provide the "first' bath with warm water to my puppies (GSD & WS) as soon as they are six weeks old and the next one is until they are nine weeks old. I would use cold water only when they are 15 weeks old and above.
# Make sure that the day is sunny when you are about to bath your pup/dog,
# Make sure that you have groomed your pup/dog to remove dead hair prior to the bath,
# Make sure that you have tied well your pup/dog into the choice place before the bath,
# Make sure that you started to bath your pup/dog from it "back-side",
# Make sure that the water did not drip into it ear & nose,
# Make sure that you use the correct soap or shampoo that are designed for canine,
# Make sure that you will run your both hand all over every inches of the pup/dog,
# Make sure that you have thoroughtly rinse the shampoo or soap over the body,
# Make sure that your pup/dog received at least 10 to 15 minutes "Sun Bath" after the "Water bath",
# Make sure that you will use dry towel to wipe or to use the pet's hair dryer,
# Make sure that you will give your pup/dog another grooming section to complete the bath.
REMEMBER, we are living in tropical country, we just can't follow what the book stated since MOST of the books were written by "UN-MOH" (read in Hokkien ... please)!!!
Speaking about the old lady using the microven to "dry" her pup/dog as asked by Derrick ... I guess I did hear about that if my memory is still correctly functioning well but I am not quite sure about this, howver ... American prefer to "bath" their dog at sauna and steam it well ... and that the "HOT-DOG" come from!!!
Hongkist would go a bit further to start with "HOT-BOILING" water to make sure all the un-wanted fur removed before they will add cooking oil and some tradtional spice to enhance the entire procedure ... and that we call ""San-Lok".
Well, just only a joke to make the forum more alive if it work!!!
