Puppies are notorious for getting into the messiest of messes when you turn your back. Knowing how to keep your wiggly puppy as clean as possible until she can leap right back into the thick of another mud puddle is important for her health and hygiene, even if it can be a bit of a pain. Thankfully, cleaning your puppy doesn’t have to be too big of a hassle, as there are a few different ways you can get it done! Whether you’re going for a quick clean or a full-on bath, cleaning puppy fur will likely be much easier than your grooming regimen once she’s a full-fledged adult.
Your puppy may or may not have had her first bath before, and that’s okay. Sometimes that means that the water can be a little scary or uncomfortable, but most puppies will get through the ordeal with enough affection, treats, and verbal praise to make it seem not so bad. Expect some apprehension, unless your puppy is overly fond of bath time.
Every puppy needs the occasional bath or cleaning in order to keep their fur healthy and looking great. Whether you decide to do a quick dry clean or a full-on bath, remember to cater your cleaning solution to your puppy's fur needs. As long as you consider what is best for her, she will be happy to get through your cleaning routine and get right back to being playful and curious.
