BATH – How We BATH a MALTESE DOG at Home

We have several ways to bath our dogs.    We often use soaking tubs to have the dogs SOAK in Shampoo as well as Conditioner.

Soaking tubs are great for deep cleansing and conditioning.   You can find these drink tubs at Michaels during the summer months.   Foot soaking tubs that we have linked below are also great bath tubs for maltese less then 5 pounds.

SHAMPOO OBSESSION:

We use a variety of products on the dogs that we groom.    When we bath puppies or dogs with sensitive skin issues, we like to use PURE PAWS OATS and ALOE.

FACE SHAMPOOS USED:

Tropiclean Blueberry Facial Scrub — rinsed thoroughly and condition afterwards as it can cause hair to dry out if left in too long.

Chris Christens HAPPY EYES, Tearless Shampoo — Sulfate Free === This was a first time using this product.   I like how safe it is for the face.

I also used the SHOW PREMIUM PET PRODUCTS  ROYAL TREATMENT Shampoo on Dolce’s face.   THIS product is NOT made for the face as it is a body shampoo, but I enjoy the way it smells on the dogs faces.   I am very careful not to get this product in the eyes as it is NOT a Tearless shampoo, albeit it is a SLS free product.

BODY SHAMPOOS USED:

PurePaws SILK BASICS Shampoo

PurePaws RECONSTRUCTING CONDITIONER mixed with PURE PAWS SILK CREME Conditioner

PURE PAWS is available at PUREPAWS.net or in our MO SHOP for cheaper shipping.    Amazon has some but the prices are very high!

After we bathe the dog, we immediately clean out the ears.   We also clean the ears weekly if possible to prevent ear infections.
