Like humans, dogs can suffer from hypothermia, so it’s vital that you only wash your dog under the proper conditions when it’s cold. This usually means bathing your dog indoors in a warm environment.

Make sure your home is warm before, during and after your dog’s bath and until your pet is completely dry.

It is recommended use warm water to bathe your pet. The water temperature must be close to body temperature, which is about 95℉ to 98℉.

To prevent your dog from getting cold, before bathing the dog's whole body, first wash the dog’s feet, buttocks and mouth because those parts typically get dirty first.

To avoid odors and fungus make sure to keep your dog inside until they are completely dry.
