I have two very active puppies, 10 weeks old. We live in Egypt, where it's hot (40C) and dusty! Everyt ime we go out, dust, car exhaust and sand collects on the fur and doesn't come out when brushed, so I have to wash my hands after every cuddle session (the water is black!).
I wash them with shampoo once a month, but during mid-day when it's very hot, I put them in the bathtub every other day and try to teach them to swim a little bit, clean between their fingers and the tear stains and sometimes put some vinegar on their coat.
Both puppies have matte type of fur, so it's not water repellant. I give them a once over with the hair dryer, but they run off the rest of the water and get completely dry within 20 min.
Will this cause their skin to get dry or is it good for them?
