Some dogs enjoy bathing outside rather than inside. Others might be too big to fit in your tub or shower inside. These large breed dogs are commonly bathed at a groomer’s or self-grooming shop. But you don’t need to pay a groomer to bathe your large breed dog, or even leave your home. You can do it in the comfort of your own backyard! With a hose or even a clean baby pool and a nice warm day, you and your dog can have fun and get clean at the same time. You can brush your dog outdoors and not worry about fur all over your house, and you can utilize the sun to help dry his fur when his bath is done.
Your dog may be a bit worried about the cold water coming out of a hose. You can help by bathing on a warm day so his bath is refreshing instead of cold. Some dog’s don’t enjoy running water. A small baby pool may help ease those anxieties. Even your small dog can have an outdoor bath. Washing a small dog will be quick work with fast sun drying time.
Can I use irrigation or secondary water to bathe my dog outside or does it need to be house water?
Kodi is a beautiful dog! I prefer using water that I know is bacteria free so yes, I think house water is best. If the water is not recommended for human consumption, then it may not be good to use on Kodi either. Best to be safe and take precautions against illness. You could collect rainwater to use for washing and rinsing, along with buckets of water brought from the house. Fill a baby pool and bathe Kodi in there if you don't want to bathe him inside. Hope this helps!
