Tips for a happy bathtime

<h1><span style="color: #339966;">How to make bath time a better experience for your dog</span></h1> Spring is here and after doing the Spring Cleaning you’re probably thinking about giving your dog a bath. After a long winter and many muddy walks he probably is in need of a nice wash. <a href="https://" rel="attachment wp-att-546"><img class=" wp-image-546" src="https://www.thegreendog.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/dog_in_bath-1-300x197.jpg" alt="dog in bath" width="475" height="312" /></a> Whilst some dogs enjoy their baths some aren’t so keen. Here are some tips to make it a happier experience for both you and your dog. <ul> <li>Assemble everything you need first. Like a small child, your dog is unlikely to sit in the bath while you go off to get the forgotten towel.</li> <li>Make sure the water isn't too hot - he can't tell you. You can always test the temperature by using your elbow.</li> <li>Brush your dog before he gets into the bath especially if he has a long coat.</li> <li>Talk to your dog in a calm and reassuring voice as he may not be enjoying the bath.</li> <li>Wet his fur using water in a jug or a shower attachment (again test the water temperature)</li> <li>Wash him with a  specialist dog shampoo - our range of <a href="https://www.thegreendog.co.uk/product-category/dog-shampoos/">Simbae dogs shampoos</a> are made from natural and organic ingredients and are paraben and phthalate free.</li> <li>Rinse your dog well, holding his head up to ensure no shampoo gets into his eyes. Remove him from the bath and towel dry. <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Remember: </span>your dog will shake himself dry so don't put him near anything you don't want to get wet!</li> <li>Reward your dog with a treat, this will let him know he's been well-behaved and that bath time is nothing to fear.</li> </ul> To treat you and your dog this Easter we are offering a special discount on our Simbae range of conditioners.
