Cleaning without bathing

591 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  RobinS87
What’s the best way to clean a dog when you aren’t able to give it a bath? My sister's dog is scared of everything. She cowers in the corner shaking and won’t move. She is quite dirty and smelly but I don’t want to traumatize her by trying to give a bath right away. Is there a way I can clean her without scaring her?

Of course you can get doggy friendly wipes that freshen and a good brush is never a bad thing expect when they are so scared ,,, sometimes its best just to place covers over things you dont want smelling of dog and wait until the trust has been established before adding any more trauma.

Starting slowly with a damp face cloth and working your way around the dog.
