I don’t think it’s any secret that Kolchak is a hairy beast.
I brush the little monster all the time. All the time.
It doesn’t seem to do much. Not matter what I do, there’s puggle hair on my clothes, the furniture and in
most of the food. That boy projectile sheds. And if you think he sheds a lot on a regular day? Holy woof. You should see how much he sheds when he’s wet. (He also turns into a gremlin. No joke.)
It usually looks like I tried to drown a rat in our tub after I’ve given Kolchak a bath.
It took me a really long time to discover the secret of how to bath the dog without clogging the drain. And even though, I’ve spent the last three years trying to find a way to make this the hot new pet product, I’m going to share it with you guys today because A: I’m a giver like that and B: Apparently, it’s a “ridiculous idea for a product and no one will buy it”. Whatever, those people clearly didn’t have puggles and I swear to woof, this works.
It sounds so simple right?
That’s because it is! I always have a box of natural baby wipes in the house to wipe muddy paws, get dog food out of Fe’s beard and to clean up other messes, but they work like a charm to stop fine dog hair from washing away with the bath water.
- Take a baby wipe and lay it over the tub drain
- Push the tub stopper in, over the baby wipe.
- Fill tub & bath dog
- place your hands around the edges of the wipe to hold it flat and pull the plug
- Allow water to drain and hair to collect in the center of the wipe. (If your dog is a hairy beast like Kolchak, you may have to clear the dog hair off the wipe once…or twice.)
- Once the water has drained away, simply lift out the wipe and almost all of the dog hair with it!
