Luna’s First Bath

6mos-siberian-husky-lunaLuna, my Siberian Husky puppy, is my first dog pet so without having any experience on puppy care, I always asked the vet doctor and pet shop owners on how to care my puppy, including when to give her the first bath. I was torn on when to give her the first bath because I got mixed advice. Some said to give after 3 months while others say after vaccination and few said to give immediately.  So, as soon as I decided the right time for Luna to give her bath, I immediately bought her shampoo, but before that, I’ve visited and read a dozen of online articles and youtube videos on how to give bath to puppies.

Before the bath:

1. Buy dog shampoo not human shampoo. Check your pet shop for varieties of shampoo, but ask for feedback from other dog owners.

2. You need: dog shampoo, big brush, towel, sponge, dog treat, leash (if your puppy is afraid of water)

3. Prepare the water. Lukewarm is good, not cold or hot.

4. Brush the puppy to remove soil and untangle fur.

During the bath:

1. Leash the puppy in the bathing place. Use short leash so the puppy will not move around so much. Be ready to get wet 🙂

2. Avoiding the ears and eyes, pour water on the puppy’s body until fully wet.

3. Mix the shampoo to a small amount of water. Dip the sponge on the shampoo mixture and lather on the puppy’s body. Scrub the body, don’t forget the stomach and legs, using the sponge and brush.

4. Rinse. Make sure that all the shampoo is rinsed. This is also the time that you can clean the ears and teeth.

5. Dry with the towel. If the puppy has long fur, you can blow dry the fur.

After bath:

1. Give the puppy a treat for doing a good job. 😀

Luna did wonderfully but I was fully wet because she constantly trying to make herself dry by shaking the water off her body. It was great after the bath, she smelled really good. I took some pictures after the bath but not able to take during the bath, it just slipped my mind because I was so focused on her.
