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.
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:
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.
We hope you enjoy watching us brush our teeth so that we can KISS KISS our humans!
NOTE: Normally the CET Virbac Vanilla Mint toothpaste should cost between $8-$12 dollars depending on where you can find it. It is sold on Amazon, Chewy’s, Doctor Foster and Smith and in your local specialized/boutique pet supply stores. Sometimes this particular flavor sells out, so we like to stock up when the price is good and supply is available. Many dogs and their humans really love the chicken and beef flavored toothpaste as well.
UPDATE: January 2016 VANILLA MINT TOOTHPASTE IS BACK IN STOCK
It is VERY IMPORTANT to NEVER include any of the EAR LEATHER when doing any type of hairstyles. We ALWAYS check to ensure that ZERO SKIN is in any tied up hair, therefore only HAIR is banded.
We show you are latest routine for washing and cleaning around the face. This is a ‘IN-Between’ baths face washing that has helped to whiten Dolce’s face and keep her muzzle very clean and healthy.
If you see our previous videos from ONE YEAR ago, Dolce’s tear stains and muzzle stains have very much whitened. We added this new regime of shampooing the face and beard with the SHOW Premium SLS Free shampoo just before Christmas 2014. We saw immediate results in cleaning up of all the dogs faces, while adding such a fresh smell to their kissable muzzles.
Show Premium Pet products can be found at pishpad.com
