Siberian Huskies Are so Stinkin’…Cute That Is

December 25, 2018

Okay, so you’ve come to our store and purchased one of our adorable Siberian Husky puppies for sale.

She’s been home with you for some time now and you’re noticing that her coat isn’t quite as shiny or smelling as sweet as it once did. Sounds (and smells) like it may be time to give your pup a bath. Are you clueless? Perhaps you’ve only taken your Siberian to a professional groomer and you are finally ready for some DIY. We’ve got some tips to get you going.

A Few Things of Note First:

Start Soon.

Even if you’re taking your dog to a professional groomer initially, you want to do this sooner than later. It will get your puppy used to bathing. If you’re doing this for the first time and in your home, use as much praise as possible. This will make her feel more comfortable.

Choose a Location.

Our Siberian Husky puppies for sale are small but not for long! In the beginning, sinks will do just fine to bathe your little beauty. As they start to get bigger, you’ll have to find another spot. Kiddie swimming pools in the summer are great, too.

Make it Fun.

You will have a much better time getting your puppy acclimated to bathing if it’s fun. Give your pup a toy or two to have while you’re washing her. Don’t forget praise…lots of it!

Rinse Thoroughly.

After you’ve shampooed your pup, make sure that you rinse your puppy thoroughly. Just like with humans, remnants of shampoo can cause dry and flaky skin. Minimize the amount of water you get in your pup’s eyes and eyes. Ideally, none should directly be sprayed in either.

Watch Out for The Shakes.

Commercials and videos of dogs happily shaking excess water from the bodies are circulated and viewed often. Sure it’s cute to watch, but not always to experience! Keep a towel nearby and pat dry your pup to keep the shaking to a minimal. If possible, use a hair dryer to assist in the process. When you purchased one of our Siberian Husky puppies for sale, you kinda knew that you were already getting a rather fluffy furball, so keep that in mind when bathing and drying them because their shakes are wide-spreading!
