Before you just throw your dog in the bath and start lathering up you should be adequately prepared. Get your shampoo (made for your dog not human shampoo), some brushes or combs, a washcloth, some cottonballs, a towel or two, and any other equipment or products you might need. You might want to use a detachable spray hose for your bath and a rubber mat makes a good idea to prevent slipping and sliding. Large breed dogs will most likely have to use the bathtub with the rubber mat on the bottom, but smaller breeds can use a plastic basin or rubber storage bin.
It is best to prepare for your pooch's bath time by using a special doggie comb to detangle mats that may be in his coat. There are actually several detangling sprays available that can facilitate gentle combing of the dog's coat so that the bathing process is more successful. If you attempt to shampoo your dog's coat without having first brushed the tangles, you will find the detangling process to be an arduous task. Please remember to first use the specialized detangling spray. If you simply try to comb the knots out dry, you will inflict considerable discomfort upon your pet. Very simply, if you are in doubt then comb your dog's hair the way you would comb your own detangle, wet, shampoo, dry, comb.
