I Hate Giving My Yorkie A Bath

I don't know about you, but I HATE getting a bath! I hate getting wet! When it is raining outside, I certainly do not want to go out and get my feet wet! My daddy tried putting booties on me once, but I wasn't thrilled with that either!
Dogs should be kept on a regular schedule of washing. This is important to prevent skin and odor problems. It is also important to use a dog shampoo because it is formulated for a dog’s skin. Here are some steps to follow when it comes to washing your dog.

The frequency of washing depends on the climate and breed of the dog. Generally speaking dogs should be washed once a week during the summer, once every two to three weeks in the spring and fall, and about once a month in the winter. This schedule is meant for healthy dogs and may vary if your dog has skin or health problems. It is best to check with your veterinarian if this is the case. Always always always rinse the coat well to remove all shampoo residue. Great dog shampoos can be found at PET CARE and Petco.
