When you pick your dog up from the groomer, their coat is fluffy, shiny, and they look like they just stepped out of a dog magazine. But when you bathe them at home, the results are definitely a lot more underwhelming.
Your dog doesn’t need to look like a runway model, but if you’re bathing your dog at home, you definitely want them to look and smell good. Not only that, but you also want to be able to make sure your dog is comfortable, while simultaneously making the job as easy as possible for you!
Wrestling your dog into the tub, keeping them from jumping out, managing spraying water, tons of hair… these all make bath time just a little more unpleasant.
What you need are the right products to get the job done right. We have 7 MUST-HAVE products to make your dog’s bath time easier on you and safe for your dog. These products will also help you get your dog looking dapper and picture-perfect.

Bath Time Bonus Items
These items aren’t must-haves per se, but they definitely make your life and your dog’s bath time so much easier.
Grooming Apron - Sure you could throw on some sweats, but why not make your dog bath time fun for yourself too? A grooming apron will keep you from getting completely soaked. They also have a pocket so you can keep your dog's treats, nail clippers, and toothbrush with you.
Grooming Tote - Keep all your dog’s bath items together with a grooming tote. This will make it easier for you to store them and help keep you super organized. You don’t need to splurge on a fancy caddy, you can also use a plastic bucket or a waterproof basket.
Fido Fizzies Pawfection Variety Pack - Treat your dog to a sample of luxury bath bombs. The two of you can decide together which one is your favorite. Or after you’ve used these up, get another variety pack so you always have a variety to choose from.
A Lick Mat - Grab the Bath Essentials Kit, and in it, you'll find your life saver: a suction cup lick mat! If you are trying to get your dog used to baths at home, this is the product you need. Smear a little peanut butter on it, and it will keep your dog entertained while you bathe them. The lick mat sticks to the side of the tub and is perfect for food-motivated dogs. You can find other types of dog lick-pads for the bath at your local pet store and online.
