The best time for pets to become comfortable with bath time is when they are young.
Play with your puppy in the bath (with no water) a few times until they become comfortable. Use a shampoo that is gentle and designed for the sensitive skin of a puppy. Waterless shampoo is an option for puppies that are particularly sensitive to water and the process of bathing.
The product is worked into the fur with a towel and brushed away.
Use an old (but clean) towel to hand dry the puppy. Take care with hairdryers, especially on a high setting.
