    If you need to bathe your pit bull, place a towel or a non-skid mat in your tub, then bring the dog into the bathroom and shut the door. Fill the tub with 3-4 inches of warm water and coax or carry the dog into the bathtub. Once the dog is in the water, use a handheld showerhead or a pitcher to wet the dog from the neck down. Wash the dog’s face with a washcloth, then apply shampoo all over the dog, from its neck to its tail. Work the shampoo into a lather, then rinse the soap away thoroughly. Dry the dog, then reward it for finishing the bath! Read on for tips from our Veterinary co-author on getting your dog ready for a bath, like taking it for a long walk first!

    What can you wash a pitbull with?

    Take some time to get you and your Pit Bull ready for the bath. Make sure that you’re in control of your Pit Bull and that he or she is in a relaxed frame of mind.

    Go for a walk with your Pit Bull before bath time. That way, they will not have much pent up energy to resist. They might actually welcome a bath when they are warmed up after a good walk. Make sure that you avoid rigorous exercise before baths.

    Brush your Pit Bull before bath time. Brushing removes dead hair and helps your Pit Bull’s coat dry quickly after the bath.

    How to Bathe a Pit Bull… Save Money at Home !!

    Pit Bulls don’t need to be bathed regularly as they have natural oils to protect their short fur and skin. However, Pit Bulls are an energetic breed. If your Pit Bull gets dirty by playing around outdoors, you might not have a choice. Depending on your situation, you can bathe your Pit Bull every two weeks or even as rarely as once every six months.

    You must make sure that you brush your Pit Bull every day to remove dead hair and distribute their natural oils throughout the coat and skin. The frequency that you bathe your Pit Bull should not be a factor for daily grooming.

    It’s important to make bath time a fun experience when it comes to bathing a Pit Bull or any dog for that matter.
