I received a puppy a couple of weeks ago. I've never owned a dog before, and I don't know how often I should bathe the dog. When I bathe it, should I use warm water, or can I use water straight from the hose? Any tricks to keep the dog from jumping on people.
Frequency of bathing depends on how dirty the dog gets. Try bathing every 2 weeks initially and as he grows bath every 4 weeks. You want to use warm water but a hose is fine during the warmer months. There is a special collar you can buy that prevents jumping. Vetcare
