Puppies can start being washed as young as 8 weeks. Start gently, it is important to start early because this will be a lifelong routine. Identify first your dog’s coat type, as this will determine what your pup's needs.
When they are this young, use a warm cloth to start, just to wipe away dirt and clean the paws. At 3 months, choose a puppy shampoo and conditioner that is pH balanced for dogs. Get them familiarised with their routine. A dog’s skin and coat are one of the most important parts of their bodies.
