Puppy Bath Video Tutorial

In this puppy bath video tutorial, we will show you how we bathe an 8 week old puppy.  Puppies can present a special grooming challenge in that the experience is new to them and they have a very short attention span. 

By providing gentle, positive reassurances and reinforcements, a puppy can grow to enjoy all grooming tasks. 

This will not happen overnight and most puppies require many experiences before they can fully relax.  The puppy in this video is very calm, a trait that he inherited from his cool dad, Mr. Kool Beans.

Not all puppies will respond to their first, second or even subsequent baths as this puppy did, but don't get discouraged if you have an excitable puppy.  Gentle, firm consistent training from you will turn them into a  relaxed pampered pooch superstar. Visit our Dog Bath page for more information on bathing your dog.
