Not only is having your dog washed by Soggidog a convenient and
affordable way to keep your dog clean, you can also be certain that
with regular bathing you are also doing one of the best things that you
can as a dog owner to ensure the health and wellbeing of your dog.
Regular hydrobathing removes a build of of oils, hair and allergins
leaving the coat fresh and shiny. Best of all - no more doggy smells in
So how does it work?
Setting up - Firsly upon arrival to your house, the hyrobath is unloaded
from its little trailer and wheeled into position which is preferably flat,
shady and near a hose and power source. The power cord is 20m long
and no special connections are needed for the hose. After the hydrobath
is filled with fresh water, plugged in, the shampoo solution is prepared
and its time for the dog!
Washing the dog - Many dogs love their bath and jump straight in,
others need some encouragement (usually in the form of a shmackos or
two!). Once the dog is securely in the bath its time for the pampering to
begin! The hydrobath works by pumping a specially formulated solution
though shower like nozzel at high pressure. The pressure penetrates to
clean your dogs skin as well as the coat. Some dogs can be nervous at
first, but it usually doesn't take them long to sit back and enjoy the
massage. Ears and eyes are checked and wiped if necessary.
Drying - After the dog is thoroughly cleaned, it receives a chamois dry,
unless active ticks are found on your dog. Leaving the dog to dry naturally
in this case, will help to maximise the residual effect of the pyrethrin. Even
if your dog has no ticks it is recommended not to towell dry afterwards if
you wish to prolong the residual effect of the insecticide in the rinse.
Finally your dog will receive a spray with your choice of two delicious
scents of Palour Cologne. These fragrances are optional, but are very
popular due to their long lasting effect.
Packing Away - The bath is then cleaned out, unplugged and loaded
back onto the trailer, the whole process takes between 15 and 30
minutes depending upon the size of the dog and condition and thickness
of the coat.
The main shampoo used in a Soggidog wash is a professional quality
product specially designed for use in the hydrobath. It combines
shampoo, conditioner and a natural insecticide pyrethrin, which is
effective in controlling fleas, ticks, lice and mites. Pyrethrin is a naturally
occurring chemical and is ineffective on humans so it is 100% safe for
children or people touching or patting the dog afterwards.
If your dog has sensitive skin or skin problems I also have Malaseb, or
Aloveen shampoos, which are often recommended by veterinarians for
treating dermatitis and other skin irritations. You are also welcome to use
your own shampoo in the hydrobath.
