Quick cleaning..

Postby Hondovious » Thu Aug 26, 2004 10:13 am

I wanted to see how everyone keeps their dogs clean, especially those that spend at least a couple hours a day outside in the yard. I take him to the groomer to get baths about twice a month (I don't pay I trade for food from my restaurant, thats why so much) but he can get dirty again in 5 minutes outside. Is there a spray that works well that you can wipe them down with in a few minutes?

i use this stuff in a spray bottle...its called instant bath or something..just spray and wipe off with paper towels...and also those dog wipes are good for a quick clean up but they are not as cost effective

If they're not too dirty baby wipes work well for us.

i don't do anything.
if they go outside for a couple of hours and come back in they usually aren't very dirty, and if they are then o well, lol.
i don't let them out often when it's muddy.

I bath them about once every 6 months.
sometimes i'll whipe them down or spray some doggy cologne on them if needed..

A quick spray-down with the hose works too! If they are too dirty for that to work, I'll give um a quick hose-bath outside with mild puppy shampoo...takes about 5 minutes...works like a charm.

When the weather permits, a kiddie pool of clean water can be fun for the dog (just let it be the dog's idea the first few times!) ... towl dry and good to go! It is just one big jolly game for them, and it helps us remove grime quiickly. Thankfully, bulls dry quickly (my shep mix is another story!) :)

Its sooo fun to bathe the dogs. They play in the water outside and love baths in the bath tub, Just last night we gave the dogs in the shower! Was exciting for one but the other HATED it! I cant stand stinky dogs so I give them a bath when they need it. Trust me you know! Az heat makes the dogs stink quickly also!

Baby wipes for quick wipe downs. We keep an extra deep dish tub outside with rags and soap, and if they get muddy, we wash their feet off on the deck before they come in. I don't bath my dogs more than once a month at the most in summer. In the winter they get one bath when it gets cold, and not another until the spring.

Well being from Michigan that seems like a given.. Don't you people just go into cryostasis up there from November-March? lol

Thanks everyone for the tips. I will go buy some baby wipes.

No only use dog shampoo and conditioter the human type is to harsh on dogs skin. I reccomend jojoba oil conditioner....It makes them shine, smell good and soft!

You shouldn't bathe them as often as I do. Or I have been told as much. But I can't stand dirty dogs in my bed.
