Follow this step by step guide to find out how to bathe your dog. Dogs should generally be bathed around once a month. It helps keep a dog's skin healthy and parasite free. It also reduces the dog's odor which is quite a problem with some pets. Many dogs would prefer to avoid bath time so it is a good idea to start getting them into the routine from as young an age as possible.

To bathe your dog you will need  2 cotton balls and two types of shampoo, tear less and ​whatever your veterinarian or groomer has recommended for your type of dog,
