Feeling Frisky: How to Wash Your Pet with Branch Basics
By Carly Farmer |
Here are the steps on bathing your pup, the non-toxic way:
Fill the tub with warm water
- Arlo loves baths (and jumping in the shower!) but I find I can get him the cleanest in the bath. If you have a larger dog or one that hates being in the bath, a hose outside will work the same way.
- Use the foamer (liberally) and create a heavy lather. Dog fur and hair holds onto a lot of grime, so the lather is crucial. Focus on paws, underbelly and the derrière for optimal freshness.
- After the lather, rinse with warm water. I find it’s easiest to use a cup to fill with water or a removable shower head.
Dry & brush Towel dry your pup and then brush them out. Certain dog breeds and coats need more brushing than others. Spruce Pets has a great article on the different types of grooming needs. Voila! You have a fresh and clean dog. Now don’t blame me if they are feeling real frisky after their Branch Basics bath! Have you tried Branch Basics on your pups? Let us know in the comments below!
