Whether you are using a kitchen sink or bathroom sink, try to prepare as much as you can in advance before bringing your little guy in for his bath. If you are bathing him in a bathroom sink you can warm up the room by running hot water first and leaving the door closed. While the room warms up, gather your supplies such as your dog shampoo, two towels, and a brush.
Once your sink area is prepared and ready for your dog, bring your little guy in for a bath. You will want to fill up the sink with warm water but only deep enough for your dog to be wet to his belly. Lining your sink with a towel will help your little guy from slipping and sliding.
Once the sink is ready for your dog with warm water, bring him in and set him inside the sink. You can ask him to sit in the water or he can stand. Either way, you want him to be comfortable.
Rinse your little guy from head to toe. Avoid getting shampoo in his eyes and water in his ears. Scrub down using small circular motions with your fingers. Be sure to get his potty areas and his paws.
Once he’s nice and clean using dog shampoo, you'll want to rinse him with clean water. You can get this water straight from your faucet or even use your kitchen spray nozzle for a nice soothing shower. Be sure to get all the shampoo out of his fur and off the skin so he doesn’t suffer dry skin after his bath.
When your little dog is rinsed, drain the water. Take him out of the sink and wrap him up in a big fluffy towel to dry. Your little guy may want to shake excess water out of his fur before you gather him up in the towel. He can remove more excess water by shaking. When he does this wet dog shake, hold a towel over him so water doesn’t fly around your room.
Once your puppy is nice and dry, he may need to be brushed. Focus on getting any tangles out of his fur. This is also a great time to reward him for a great behavior during his sink wash. Give him a nice tasty treat while you are brushing him to reward positive behaviors.
