Your puppy is seven weeks old! For some, this could mean he’s new to your home and is discovering his role as your new best friend. For others, the puppy might still be with his mother and littermates waiting for his forever home. Either way, if he’s managed to get into a mess of trouble and get dirty, it might be time for a bath. If he’s not filthy, a good wipe down to return that sweet puppy smell to his cute fuzzy face might be necessary. At seven weeks, your puppy is old enough to take a bath. He is able to regulate his body temperature better than he has in the past. But if a bath isn’t necessary, you might want to consider waiting a bit longer before submerging him.
Your puppy is excited and a little troublemaker. He can get into anything from trash to his own poop to get dirty. Keep an eye on him at all times to ensure he is safe, especially around water. He might be eager to get clean or he may not sit still long enough to let you clean him. Treats will help get his attention and keep him focused.
