I. Samoyed Preparation of supplies
Daily maintenance will keep your dog’s coat healthy, but sometimes it is necessary to bathe your dog if he rolls on smelly objects. When you give your dog a bath, Little Edge suggests that you should have the following bathing tools.
1. Samoyed Bath tub
Please prepare a dog-friendly bathtub according to the size of the dog. If it is a big dog, you can let the dog stand in the bathroom.
Be sure to have a suitable bathtub, preferably half the height of the dog, slightly larger than the dog, and requiring enough to accommodate the dog without interfering with bending over when bathing. It is best to put a rubber mat or towel on the bottom of the tub so that the dog does not slip and fall. The height and size of the sink is appropriate, with an adequate supply of hot and cold water, equipped with a shower, a small platform for drying the dog after bathing. Clean and disinfect the sink after bathing. When bathing dogs in the tub, it is best for people to wear a waterproof apron to prevent splashing water from getting their clothes wet.
2. Samoyed Special shampoos
Similar to human shampoos, but with different ingredients than those commonly used by people, it is recommended that you prefer to use a pet shampoo.
3. Samoyed Large cup
When shampooing your dog, you can use it to lather your dog.
4. Samoyed Towel
Please have a special towel for your dog and use it to soak up any excess powder for your dog.
5. Samoyed Cotton swabs
When bathing a dog, water can easily reach the dog’s ears. To prevent your dog’s ears from getting infected, you can wipe your dog’s ear canal with a cotton swab.
6. Samoyed Hair dryer
With all of the above done, the final blowing of the dog’s coat with a warm air blower will allow the coat to dry faster and reduce skin diseases in the dog.
7. Samoyed Grooming tools
Help your dog groom his coat with a grooming tool to avoid tangles.
Bathing helps remove some skin parasites and is very beneficial for dry and oily skin. Sometimes your veterinarian may recommend that you use medicated bath shampoos and conditioners. You should follow the product instructions exactly.
Some reluctant dogs will jump out of the tub and run around when you’re not looking, leaving wet footprints and water stains. This is when the dog needs to be confined to the tub with a shower retainer. Some long-haired dogs have thick layers of fur that do not get wet easily. Showering with a shower is certainly much easier. A small plastic bucket can be used to scoop up water to rinse the dog off and can also be used as a container to dilute the bath shampoo.
Sometimes dogs can be afraid of baths. But there is no way to calm the dog during the bath. . The gentle and correct way will make them get used to it slowly. Before giving your dog a bath, prepare the above items. This way you can give your dog a bath without any problems.
II. Samoyed Bathing steps
1. Samoyed Wearing a collar
Put a collar on your dog before you give him a bath so that he can be easily controlled during the bath. This doesn’t seem to work for a good dog after years of “bathing”, but try it on a first time dog.
2. Samoyed Plugging ear canal
Stuff the dog’s dinghy ear canal vertically with a cotton swab or tampon do not use a cotton ball, which will automatically fall out if the dog shakes its head during the bath.
Alternatively, use a dab of gentamycin ointment on the eyes to keep bathwater and dirty water out.
3. Keep the Samoyed standing still
If your dog is bathing in a bathtub or tub, the water should be 5-10 cm deep, and a non-slip mat can be placed in the tub to keep your dog standing still in the tub.
4. Comb Samoyed’s’hair
Dip the dog’s entire body in the appropriate warm water and gently brush the dog’s coat to make it comfortable and quiet in preparation for the bath.
5. Samoyed Full body rubbing
First apply the bath to the dog’s back, rubbing from the back to the buttocks, rubbing the foam all over the body, and finally washing the dog’s head, ears, chin, anus, limbs, and soles of the feet, which should be completely washed and care needs to be taken to avoid the foam getting into the dog’s eyes.
Although the packages of baths sold in pet stores state that they do not irritate the eyes, so far there are no baths that dogs like 100% and are 100% safe.
So the only way is to be careful. If it’s your dog’s first bath, or if he’s the uncooperative type when it comes to bathing, you can try using a collar to control your dog.
In this case, you hold the dog’s collar with one hand while gently scrubbing so that the dog doesn’t jump out or get water everywhere.
6. Samoyed Flush
The rinse is directed to wash the dog’s head first, then the dog’s body.
Gradually rinse backwards from the head, don’t split your head and grab your face, rinse where you can.
7. Use hair conditioner
Always make sure that any bath residue left on the dog’s coat is thoroughly cleaned. After making sure the bath residue on the dog is completely cleaned, it is recommended to use conditioner every time. The pH balance facilitates thorough cleaning of the bath residue on the dog.
8. Drying Samoyed
The last process is to comb the dog’s hair until it is completely dry. Sometimes we see that the dog’s surface hair is dry, but the bottom is still wet. At this point, to avoid the dog catching a cold, please do not let him blow cold air. Dry the dog with a large towel that can completely wrap around the dog, remove the tampons in the dog’s ears, and dry the ears. Wipe with the towel first, then blow dry with a hair dryer.
If your dog is comfortable with the sound of the hair dryer, you can also use the warm air of a regular hair dryer to dry his hair. To avoid burning your dog’s skin, the hair dryer should be kept more than 30 cm from your dog’s fur.
If your dog has a skin condition, let it dry naturally, as the heat from the hair dryer can further irritate the itchy affected areas of the skin.
Early summer is here and many parents are bathing their dogs more frequently, but parents know that bathing is actually a very important discipline. Bathing can build friendship with your dog, but if not handled properly, it can also leave trust in your dog, so your dog is reluctant to bathe you later and resists being close to you!
The Samoyed has a very striking appearance, strong but trouble-free: with its snow-white coat, smiling face and black and intelligent eyes, it is known as the smiling angel and is one of the most beautiful dogs nowadays. Physically strong and fast, the Samoyed is an excellent guardian dog, but gentle and friendly, never causing trouble, but able to maintain a position. To maintain the image of the Samoyed, owners still need to bathe it regularly. Regular bathing of the Samoyed is an important part of Samoyed breeding management. Proper bathing not only keeps the Samoyed clean, hygienic and beautiful, it also improves the health of the Samoyed. If you can talk to your dog from time to time throughout the bathing process, like coaxing a baby, he will relax and cooperate with you better.
III. Samoyed Bathing techniques
1. Wash more dirty parts
The dog’s four feet, buttocks and mouth are the parts of the body that get dirty easily, so before you give him a full body bath, wash these parts with soap first. The company’s main goal is to provide a comprehensive range of products and services to the market. You will not find the dog’s feet, buttocks and other places not a color after washing.
2. Trim the hair around the buttocks
When you wash your dog’s bottom, wash around the anus with soap and check for long hair around the anus that tends to stick to the feces. Most dogs do well in the bath and the hair around the butt gets wet easily. So you can trim it at this time, but be careful not to cut it around the anus
3. Dry cleaning method
For dogs that don’t like baths, you can take the bottle and dilute the bath first, then sprinkle the diluted bath on the dog and rub the lather while the dog’s coat dries, kind of like when we go to the salon to dry shampoo our hair. This way the dog only rinses the water once while the lather is being rinsed, so it reduces the chance of it competing with you. However, this method doesn’t work for dogs with big, thick hair because your sparse bath is suddenly absorbed by the dry, thick coat. You have to use a lot to knead the lather, so it’s best to get the hair wet first.
4. Wash your mouth
If you have a flat-mouthed dog like a Pekingese or a Pug, it’s best not to use water directly on its face because these dogs have short nasal passages and the dog doesn’t know how to hold its breath, so it’s easy for water to get up its nose and make it very uncomfortable. You can wipe your face with a wet towel soaked in water. For dogs with long faces, washing their faces is not easy. Even the best dogs will resist washing their faces. The key to washing your face is to fix it with your hand and not let it hide. You can grab his mouth with one hand to make him think you’re stronger than he is, then hold the nozzle in the other hand and flush the face so the water runs down between the dog’s eyes and nose, so he doesn’t get his eyes wet or let the water get up his nose. Then switch over and flush to the other side.
5. Prepare a dry towel
This is very necessary. Because it’s easy to splash water in the dog’s eyes when bathing, and to bury his head down and let the water run down his nose when washing his hair. I suspect that when he buries his head and endures the water rushing to his head, his eyes will be closed, while at other times his eyes will always be open. The dog will happily wipe the water from his eyes and nose promptly with a hand towel and a small dry towel. Personally, I like to use the wipe because the hand towel is so absorbent that I don’t have to use it and just throw it away, saving me the trouble of using a towel.
6. Clothing preparation
Dogs love to throw water when they take a bath, it’s the only way they can shake it, but it’s really easier than us rubbing half the time. So don’t stop him from shaking the water, especially after the wash, and let him shake as much water as he can, no matter where he throws it. Sometimes my dog didn’t shake the water after I washed it because the water was wiped clean from his eyes and nose. I even rinse his face on purpose, prompting him to >give it a good shake. Because it really shakes off a lot of water, it saves a lot of effort for us to dry and blow. So, as someone who gives it a bath, you have to wear a shirt that’s about to be thrown in the washing machine because a good portion of the water it shakes off will run on you.
7. Ear protection
Water in a dog’s ears can easily cause ear infections. Before bathing, rub two cotton balls slightly larger than your ears’ eyes and stuff them into your dog’s ears so that any water that accidentally flows in there will be held back by the cotton balls. But remember to take it out after the bath, because if the wet cotton balls aren’t thrown out by the dog, it will backfire.
In general, it is easier to give a Samoyed a bath. Even if they don’t cooperate, they won’t try everything to escape. You then pay attention to learn and summarize some tips and tricks, and it will be easy to handle. Due to weak resistance, puppies are prone to respiratory infections, colds and pneumonia due to bathing colds. Therefore, puppies under half a year old should not be bathed, dry-cleaned, sprayed daily or the next day with a dilution of more than 1000 times the conditioner and baby talcum powder, and brushed often, can replace washing.
Puppies are afraid of bathing. Therefore, we should do a good job of training the puppy for the first bath by filling a basin with warm water, basin, and exposing the head and neck, which will make the dog feel comfortable and less reluctant to take a bath later. These are some of the preparations before the dog’s official bath. Also the methods and tips for small owners to bathe their Samoyed.
IV. Samoyed Bathing precautions
The secretions from your dog’s sebaceous glands have an unpleasant odor and can become contaminated with dirt, making the hair tangled and giving off a gusty odor. If you don’t bathe your dog, it can easily cause the invasion of pathogenic microorganisms and parasites, making your dog sick. So be sure to bathe your dog to keep your skin clean and conducive to your dog’s health.

It is a dog’s instinct to clean himself by licking his coat with his tongue, but this is not nearly enough for a dog to clean himself. You have to give him a bath. Usually, domesticated dogs are washed once a month. In the hot, humid south, they can be washed every 1-2 weeks.
- 1. Always comb the coat before bathing. This will comb out tangled hair and prevent the coat from becoming more tangled; it will also remove large pieces of dirt and make it easier to clean. In particular, the mouth, ears, armpits, femurs, toe tips and other areas where the dog least wants to be groomed should be combed clean. When grooming, to reduce and avoid pain for your dog, you can hold the root of the hair with one hand and groom with the other.
- 2. The temperature of the bath water should not be too high or too low, generally 36-37 degrees in spring.
- 3. When bathing, be sure to prevent shampoo from getting into the dog’s eyes or ears. Be sure to rinse thoroughly and don’t leave soap suds or shampoo on the dog to avoid irritating the skin and causing dermatitis.
- 4. Dogs should be bathed in the morning or at noon, not in high air humidity or on rainy days. After bathing, dry immediately with a hair dryer or towel. Do not leave the dog in the sun to dry after bathing.
The secretions from your dog’s sebaceous glands have an unpleasant odor and can become contaminated with dirt, making the hair tangled and giving off a gusty odor.
