How to Give Your Dog a Pampering Bath?!


There are few creatures in the world that love us as loyally and unconditionally as dogs, and as owners, we have the duty of treating our canine friends well and providing what they need. Sometimes you may want to spoil your dog a bit extra, and pampering your dog with a special spa bath can be a wonderful way to show your love.


The first step to any pampering dog bath is finding a soothing and aromatic shampoo, according to Dogspired.com. There are many pet shampoos available with the relaxing scent of lavender, mint and eucalyptus, which create a calming atmosphere for your dog. You can also find shampoos with soothing ingredients like oatmeal, tea tree oil and aloe, which are great for itchy, sensitive skin. Another great idea for this step is to give your dog a gentle massage while you lather the shampoo as an added treat.


You can continue to pamper your pooch by using a moisturizing fur conditioner. This will make your dog’s fur soft, smooth and fragrant, and will also help untangle any knots. This will help your pup feel spoiled with a luxurious and shiny coat and will also keep your dog’s skin from becoming dry, flaky and itchy.

Foot Care

Don’t forget about your dog’s feet; include them in the pampering bath by trimming its nails and checking between paw pads for any tangled hair. According to the ASPCA, you can also apply special dog foot moisturizing cream to soothe your dog’s paw pads, and for true pampering, you can give your pup a foot massage while you rub in the cream. Moisturized paws with trimmed nails make running and playing much more comfortable for your pup.

Face Pampering

You can brighten up and soothe your dog’s lovable face with special facial treatment shampoos. According to Paws of Enchantment Holistic Pet Spa, your dog will feel pampered with a squeaky-clean face, free of dirt, food and slobber. Also, you can use dog toothpaste and a dog toothbrush to freshen up your hound’s mouth.


After your dog is dry, you can add one last pampering touch by brushing it thoroughly. For long haired dogs, use a pin brush to smooth the coat and remove tangles, and for short hair, use a firm brush with short, rounded teeth to remove shedding fur. According to Dogtime.com, tangled and excess fur is uncomfortable for dogs and brushing will make them feel fantastic. Brushing also distributes the dog’s natural body oils through the coat, keeping their skin and fur in perfect condition.
