How to Properly Dry Your Dog After a Bath.

How to Properly Dry Your Dog After a Bath.

After a long day of playing in the park, your dog is covered in dirt and mud. The best way to clean them is to give them a bath, but what do you do when it’s time to dry them off?

Dogs need to be bathed once a month or so. While giving your dog a bath just 12 times per year may not seem like much of a burden, it isn’t at Pet Fresh Dog Wash. That’s because when washing at home, you won’t have the proper equipment and your room will end up extremely wet and messy when your dog shakes to dry. If you take your dog to a groomer, you’ll incur yet another ongoing expense to keep your pet clean throughout the year as well. When you bathe your dog at Pet Fresh Dog Wash instead, you might be in for one of the most conveniently fun experiences for your dog from the wash, rinse to dry stages. Especially the drying process because our drying hoses are designed to dry dogs at the right temperature and strength because you do not want your dog to be uncomfortable to the last step of their bath!

The drying-off process is one of the reasons that some dogs hate getting bathed. Drying your dog, like wetting and shampooing them, is an important component of the bathing process.

If you’re wondering if you should let your dog air dry, the answer is no, you shouldn’t. You should consider drying your pet to be an integral part of the bathing process, just like scrubbing your dog is.

Dog Drying Techniques

Some dog owners are content to allow their pets to air dry, but you shouldn’t be. When you allow your dog to air dry, fungus may grow between their paw pads and the rest of their body.

If your dog has long hair, it may become matted if you let them air dry after a bath. Also, when left to their own devices, a lot of dogs will roll on the floor or furniture to dry their coat, which will defeat the point of a bath and make a mess of your floors or furniture. This isn’t the case at Pet Fresh Dog Wash. Wiping off most dogs is a two-step procedure that begins with towels and finishes with a dryer.

How to Dry a Dog After a Bath with Towels

Although we do not provide towels at our self-serve luxury dog wash, we highly encourage you to bring a towel for your pup because they will appreciate it. If your dog is large, you may need to employ two or three towels to get started. To preserve absorbency, use absorbent towels; therefore, pick up some microfiber towels that will only be used for drying your pet off.

After bathing your dog, some people rub them vigorously with a towel, but this isn’t the best approach. You should use a towel to carefully squeeze water out of your dog’s hair by starting with their head and moving backward to their tail. As you dry off your dog, go from their backside down to their belly, legs, and paws

How to Dry a Dog After a Bath with a Dryer Hose

The key to drying your dog with a dryer is to understand that it’s not the heat that will remove the extra water from his coat, but rather the strength of airflow. When you force-dry your dog, you must be careful not to point the nozzle at his face, ears, or genitals. Our dryer hoses are long and flexible that provide the perfect level of airflow for your dog.

Place the dryer’s nozzle just above your dog’s skin. In short strokes, move the nozzle back and forth across your dog’s coat so that they feel like you’re giving them a massage as you dry them off. As you progress to other parts of your dog’s coat, areas where you previously blew may become wet again. It is important to go over your dog’s coat multiple times at a moderate pace. We recommend five times for smaller dogs, eight for medium, and ten to 12 for depending on how large your dog is.
