A traditional bath can be time-consuming, particularly if you have a dog with thick or long hair. It is important to get him dry after his bath, to keep his skin healthy, but that can take longer than the bathing process. A dry bath is perfect in these circumstances.
Brush your dog thoroughly to remove loose hairs and dirt.
Sprinkle baking soda over his entire body, putting some in your hand and applying it to his belly and legs.
Use both hands to massage the baking soda down to his skin. The baking soda absorbs odors and oil, and will leave his coat clean and fresh.
Brush the baking soda out of his coat. Brush thoroughly, so no trace of the baking soda remains.
