See its so wet out here during the winter and mine are always wet and/or muddy coming back in, I would have to bath them every single day! And their beds are so dirty, I'm washing them all the time too

I dunno how other ppl do it

Hayley, after every single walk I wipe their paws, bums and bellies with a
warm wet rag. If they got too dirty to clean with rag then I put them in the
bath and simply rinse of the bellies, bums and paws with warm water, no
soap. As for the floors, I keep a bucket and a mop next to the door during the
nasty weather, and right after the dirty monkeys come home I wipe the area
they walked on and managed to get dirty before I got to clean them up. This
is our routine, it only takes a couple of minutes after every walk, no biggie. As
for the dog beds, I use these rubber dog beds, I put a little mattress in them
and on top of that blankets. The blankets get switched every 3 days, that
way the beds always stay clean. I also keep throws on my couch, and on my
bed, they help keep the actual sheets clean, I rotate the throws for clean
ones every 3-4 days. It all doesn't take much time at all, but helps keep the
place clean.

I will be going up to the mountains in a couple of weeks though so he best get used to it soon.

I think he'd do better if he was not in the yard too, he just kept going to the door.


I hope you have a nice trip!
It can take a while for the pups to get used to snow, cold, etc.
My success comes from lots and lots praise and good warm clothes.

Ahhh ok fair enough, lol I was wondering did everyone else just wash them after each walk or was there something else I wasn't thinking of!

I do sometimes put them into the kitchen sink and just rinse them. Do u blowdry them or just towel dry and let them be damp in the house?

No I don't dry them, just with the towel, really well. They run around and
play, and the tummies dry fast. I only blow dry them if I washed them fully,
and it's cold in the house. I used to always trim Chanel's tummy, bum and
paws, then she did not get as filthy. But lately I let it all grow out, and just
love the look too much. It's a bit more maintenance but it's just so darn pretty, lol.

Yes absolutely. I'm going to the Doctor's right now, but will try to post them
once I'm home or tomorrow. They are cheap, but look decent and are very easy
to keep clean.

Just take your time. I'm looking for a new bed for her, I would like to see different ones beside the usual ones.
