The Best Bath Products for your Dog

Best Bath Products for your Dog | Dog owners despise bath-time almost as much as dogs despise getting cleaned. Whether you take your dog to the beach, to the park, or just outside in your yard – dogs love digging and getting themselves dirty. There are a variety of products in the market you can purchase to make bath-time less of a hassle and more fun, both for you and your pet.

From the equipment and tools you’ll need to prepare yourself for a bath to the products that will keep your dog neat between baths, this is a complete guide to the best bath products for your furry friend.

Grooming Apron

If you’ve ever given your dog a bath, you know that it’s most likely going to be a messy experience. However, with the right grooming gear, you won’t have to worry about getting drenched. Getting your hands on a grooming apron will save you the trouble of getting unwanted bath water on you; plus, it is multi-purpose and fun to use. The water-resistant material will prevent the soapy bath water from getting on you and you won’t have to worry about your clothes getting wet. It also comes with pockets so you can keep all the grooming products in one place, reaching out for the ones that you need to use.

Scrubbing Gloves

Doggy bath-time means that you’ll be scrubbing off plenty of gross stuff and dirt off your dog’s body. To save yourself from coming into contact with the muck that’s stuck to your dog, scrubbing gloves will be your lifesaver. Scrubbing gloves come with a layer of silicon with tiny spikes that let you scrub off loose fur, dirt, and other unwanted debris. These gloves won’t just keep your hands and nails clean, but the spikes will also massage your dog, allowing them to enjoy bath-time.

Booster Bath Tub

Most dog owners who wash their dogs on their porch or in the yard think of it as a back-breaking task. Bending over to shampoo and scrub your pet can be a painful experience, especially when you finally stand up straight after bathing them. Getting a booster bathtub is a solution to this dreadful backache. This tub is elevated and has enough space to fit even a large-breed adult dog. With the help of the booster bath, you can easily stand up straight during the entire process.

Vetericyn FoamCare Shampoo

Bath-time for your dog isn’t complete without the perfect shampoo. Vetericyn FoamCare Shampoo comes in four varieties for different coat lengths: low, medium, high, and a medicated formula. If your dog has sensitive skin, it’s advised to get the medicated formula. If not, depending on the thickness and length of your dog’s coat you can get either of the three shampoos.

The shampoos are designed to clean, soothe, and heal your dog’s skin due to their balanced pH value. These shampoos are plant-based and contain no harmful and toxic chemicals. The shampoo lathers up quickly and rinses off instantly. You won’t have to worry about wasting too much water to make sure all the product is out.

The packaging is designed for easy access and you won’t have to worry about unscrewing the bottle cap with your wet hands. Just spray the shampoo with 2 to 3 pumps onto the coat of your dog and scrub till it lathers up.

WildWash Dog Shampoo

This shampoo by WildWash is specifically designed for dogs that have itchy and dry coats of fur. When dogs have scratchy skin they cannot be at peace and you will find balls of fur lying around the entire house. This medicated formula gently deep cleans the coat of your dog without removing the natural moisture from your dog’s skin.

The shampoo helps hydrate the skin and makes it softer as well. As instructed on the packaging, make sure to dilute the shampoo with drops of water before you apply it to your dog’s coat. If your dog suffers from insect bites and dandruff, this is your one-stop solution to healing and preventing dryness.

Cleaning Wipes

If you find your dog dirtying up your house with messy paws and belly, cleaning wipes are a quick and easy fix to clean your dog. If you don’t have access to water, or you’re short on time to give them a bath, doggie wipes by Good Dog Wipes are the solution for you. These natural, alcohol-free wipes contain moisturizers that will leave your dog’s skin and coat soft and clean.

Microfiber Dog Towel

Microfiber towels have the ability to soak up all the water particles, drying out any surface. With the help of microfiber dog towels, they instantly absorb all the water and prevent the “wet dog” smell from accumulating. The towel has the capacity to hold up at least seven times its weight in water. You can easily shake off the fur after you’re done drying your dog and pop it in the washing machine for recurring use.

Nail Clippers

A dog’s grooming regime isn’t complete without giving them proper nail care. You should try to regularly trim your dog’s nails to keep their paws healthy. Not only this but keeping the nails of your dog short will prevent them from scratching surfaces and furniture. Nail clippers designed for dogs come with a safety feature that prevents you from cutting their nails too short.


No doubt bath time for dogs can be a major weekly chore, but with the right tools and equipment, you can turn bath time into playtime. Purchasing products that will make bath time easier will leave you and your dog happy and satisfied. Aprons, booster tubs, scrubbing gloves, wipes, and the right shampoos will help maintain the cleanliness and hygiene of your furry best friend.

Facts About Animal Homelessness:

  1. Only 1 out of every 10 dogs born will find a permanent home.
  2. The main reasons animals are in shelters: owners give them up, or animal control finds them on the street.
  3. Each year, approximately 2.7 million dogs and cats are killed every year because shelters are too full and there aren’t enough adoptive homes. Act as a publicist for your local shelter so pets can find homes. Sign up for Shelter Pet PR.
  4. Approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately 3.9 million are dogs and 3.4 million are cats.
  5. According to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy (NCPPSP), less than 2% of cats and only 15 to 20% of dogs are returned to their owners.
  6. 25% of dogs that enter local shelters are purebred.
  7. About twice as many animals enter shelters as strays compared to the number that are relinquished by their owners.
  8. It’s impossible to determine how many stray dogs and cats live in the United States. Estimates for cats alone range up to 70 million.
  9. Only 10% of the animals received by shelters have been spayed or neutered. Overpopulation, due to owners letting their pets accidentally or intentionally reproduce, sees millions of these “excess” animals killed annually.
  10. Many strays are lost pets that were not kept properly indoors or provided with identification.
  11. According to The Humane Society, there are about 3,500 brick-and-mortar animal shelters in the US and 10,000 rescue groups and animal sanctuaries in North America.
