He gets so dirty all the time!

How do some of y'all get your dogs clean after they've gotten dirty outside and don't want to give them a bath. If I gave Yukon a bath every time his fur got dirty or muddy, it would be a bath a day and that is a NO! I've heard of wipes...are those worth it?

What do you do about cleaning your dog up without bathing them?

I rinse Molly in the tub if she's really dirty. Wipes are okay too, but it's so much faster to just spray her down.

I sometimes try a good brushing, and wet her dirty spots with a spray bottle and then towel her off

If I can't get Cookie clean with that, then we do a quick bath. Otherwise it is much more work later to clean that dirt off the couch, the floors, my pants, etc...

Towel dry and then brush. Jess gets wet a lot, we have a fair amount of rain.

I towel dry if nec. Sometimes if the sun is out, I let them dry off, then brush them well. Some people put a bit of gold Listerine into a bottle with water, and spray the coat. Helps clean the dog off without a bath. Great for after the dog park. if dogs are smelling funky and it's not time for a bath, I use a spray coat conditioner, sweet smelling, then brush.

LIGHTBULB going off over my head!

Rocky is 4 months old and he loves to be brushed. I love it to because he's so adorable. I can brush him for an hour and cuddle him and play. He knows where the brush is now and will try to get up on my ottoman to be brushed. (I have to help him up ..lol).

It dawned on me that he doesn't have that funky puppy smell (musky?) so much when I brush him 2 times a day. Plus it's nice to see all the fur come off and I get to see and notice how his coat is coming in and where.

When it was raining and he would come back from a walk we would just use a beach towel, reuse it, etc. Then I'd put his puppy blanket down on my ottoman and brush him.

Our breeder gave us some puppy wipes to use, but we have gone threw them.

My Swifter is my best friend Although I have to do it when he's napping because he loves to chase it!

I let him dry (towel dry if he's soaked), then brush out the muddy spots. If he's filthy, I'll use a damp paper towel and give the dirty spots a rub. Then a spritz with cleaning/deodorizing spray and he's good to go.

Unless Tucker is completely covered in mud, we normally just let him dry and give him a good brushing. Normally that gets most things out. If not, we use a wet washcloth to get off the persistent spots. I don't even bathe my little dogs every week and they are much easier than Tucker - I imagine he'll be getting a bath once a month at most.
