What should I do to prepare a dog for a bath?

Give a Better Bath

You can do a few things to make bath time for your canine a safer and more pleasant experience. Put a non-slip mat in the bathtub to make your dog feel more secure. She may be frightened and fidgety during a bath and the mat will keep her from slipping and sliding.

• Always use dog shampoo and conditioner and not a product made for people. Dog shampoos and conditioners are specially formulated for your dog's needs. Pay extra attention to the underside of your dog. Check for pests and irritations.

• When bathing your dog, protect her eyes from shampoo by rubbing a cotton ball saturated with mineral oil around the eye area. This prevents shampoo from entering her eyes.
