Your dog needs a good scrubbing every now and then. And sometimes, especially if his face has long fur, his mouth, will need to be washed. Whether you are washing your dog’s face while giving him a nice, gentle bath or cleaning food out of his beard, you need to know how to wipe, wash, and get your beautiful pup’s face clean. A clean face is also a healthy face. Bacteria can grow in skin folds, causing irritation and potential infection. Keeping his face clean and tidy is an important grooming task. Some dogs will love having their face washed while others will turn away from you and try to get away before finding the closest mud pit to roll in. Learn the best ways to wash your dog’s face so you can spot clean and fully clean no matter what your dog has gotten into.
Getting anything near your pup’s face might cause a little anxiety for your little guy. If your dog doesn’t like water poured over his head, you can use a cloth to get the dog’s face wet. If he will allow you to pour water, be cautious not to get any near or in his eyes.
My dog hates getting her face washed and usually I do with my hands, however once I came across this post I tried the washcloth and she seems so much more comfortable with it.
