Having a puppy at home is an experience not to be forgotten. There will be days of mischief and anecdotes, but there should also be time for discipline and the establishment of a series of rules in the house. In this post, we will tell you some basic tips to maintain your puppy's hygiene for longer.
Although in the current state of alarm due to the coronavirus pandemic, we must be more responsible with the hygiene of our pets:
⦁ Short walks and avoid socializing the dog with other dogs or with other people.
⦁ Clean the pads, tail, and muzzle with soap and water after the ride.
TIPS TO KEEP YOUR PUPPY CLEAN WITHOUT BATHING HIM
While it's time to bathe your puppy, there are many things you can do to keep your puppy clean at home.
USE WET WIPES FOR PETS
The wipes for puppies are very practical. They fit in any bag and can be very useful on countless occasions. Use them anytime your puppy appears with a dirty nose or legs; you just have to take them out and clean your little friend (always avoiding his eyes).
BRUSH YOUR PUPPY
Creating a routine when grooming a dog is very important. The daily maintenance of its coat by brushing will help, among other things, to reduce the amount of dirt that accumulates in your puppy's hair, so it will keep it cleaner in general.
If you are bothered by the "doggy smell" that most puppies have, you can massage your puppy's hair with dry shampoo. Leave it for 5 minutes to take effect, and then brush it off to remove the product. It is ideal for you to use between washes and keep your puppy free of excess fat and bad odors.
CLEAN YOUR DOG'S ITEMS
It does not make sense to keep your puppy very clean, and his things are dirty, so it is also important that you ensure that his bed, toys, and feeders are always clean.
It is also convenient for you to allocate a place in the house to relieve himself (try to be away from his food). Put soakers in the area of your choice so that he learns that he has to do it there.
EYE AND EAR CARE
Just like you wash your face every morning, your little dog also needs you to remove the blemishes on a daily basis.
Another point to take into account is the ears of the puppies. From time to time, it is good to clean the inside of the ear with a specific cleaner for dog ears. Be very cautious as their ears are sensitive inside. You can also use the wipes to clean his ears.
TAKE CARE OF THE DOG'S ORAL HYGEINE
Good oral health is important to complete your puppy's general cleaning. Nobody wants to be around a puppy with bad breath. Dental sticks are an easy way to keep teeth clean and prevent future problems because of tartar.
