Puppies take a few weeks to learn how to clean their bottoms or how to walk away without getting messy after going potty.
And even though your puppy starts to learn potty training and separating his potty area from his play or sleep areas while still with his mother, he may not pause long enough to pay attention to his bottom. Puppies with shorter fur tend not to have to worry about this at all, while puppies who have longer fur may have to deal with this issue for some time to come. While your puppy is still learning and potty training, you may need to consider cleaning his bottom for him, so you are sure he’s both beautiful and sanitary.
My baby pooped in the middle of the night and sat on it. Now has dried poop. I tried cleaning with wet puppy wipes but no help. Can I give her a bath? Shes only 9 weeks old. If yes can I use baby shampoo. Shes been home with me for just about a week. TIA
Hello, with Maya being so young, I'd be extra careful about what to use to bathe her. Take a look at the guide here on bathing. At the top of the page you'll see the opportunity to ask a vet. I expect you can bathe her, but ask the vet's advice. I think keeping her warm afterward is essential. You may be able to clean her well enough with just water as well. https://wagwalking.com/wellness/how-to-bathe-your-dog. Good luck!
