If your dog has dry, flaky skin, he might be miserable--scratching often, whining, and in pain. His coat could also be dry as a result of unhealthy skin. Conditioning your pup’s skin could help remedy a bad skin issue. But more than a remedy, a deep skin conditioning can ease the discomfort of dry skin. Conditioning your dog’s skin helps to restore natural oils relieving itchy skin and giving the coat an opportunity to become healthy and beautiful. A healthy conditioning on your dog’s skin can also create a healthy coat with a soft sheen.
If your dog has dry, itchy skin, he’s not very comfortable. Taking a bath might not be top on his list of fun things to do because he skin probably hurts. Water too warm will cause more dryness and sting or burn his skin. Be gentle and consider treats for rewards as you condition his skin.
