Using a hose and sprayer method for dog washing
Prepare your bathtub or sink by placing a non skid mat or towel on the bottom to keep your dog from slipping.
Prepare some shampoo ahead of time. Using an empty squeeze bottle (an empty dish soap bottle works great), pour the amount of shampoo you would use once for the entire dog, and dilute with water. Mix ratio is usually about 8 to 1. Check your bottle’s instructions to see if the mix ratio is listed. You can then distribute shampoo evenly over your dog’s entire body including the feet, tail, chin, and other frequently missed spots.
32:1 --- ½ cup per gallon
24:1 --- ¾ cup per gallon
16:1 --- 1 cup per gallon
12:1 --- 1 ½ cup per gallon
8:1 --- 2 cup per gallon
6:1 --- 3 cup per gallon
Commonly missed rinsing places include:
If you don’t have a hose and sprayer in your tub or sink, just make sure all the soap is thoroughly rinsed by pouring fresh clean water on your dog using a cup. Don’t dip water from the tub. You’ll just keep adding the soapy mixture back onto the dog.
Towel dry as much as possible. This will cut down on blow dryer time. Allow the dog to ((((SHAKE)))) afterwards. Your dog can shake out more water than your towel can absorb, so allow him to shake after his bath. Just hold your towel up to shield yourself.
