How To Bathe Your Siberian Husky

Does Bathing Your Dog Feel Chaotic?

Don’t worry! We’ll show you how to bathe your Siberian Husky calmly, and even turn the whole experience into a fun SPA DATE!

I remember the days when the thought of bathing our dogs gave me anxiety and panic. They all hated the experience, and I dreaded struggling with their thick fluffy coats, not to mention their stubborn personalities and insistence on battling their way out of the tub.  #huskylife

However, I had no idea that with a few simple adjustments and a couple of tricks, it would be possible to turn bath time into a spa date for all of us. Yes, you can achieve this too!

We filmed two full videos to teach you what we’ve learned over the years, including all of our hard-earned tips and tricks on how to bathe your Siberian Husky (or any other breed). Enjoy!


Of course you can bathe your dog at home, but using a dog self-wash has so many benefits that we’ve never looked back. Tubs at dog washes are raised to make the bathing process easier, and to spare your back the pain of bad posture! Bathing your dog in a place designed specifically for this purpose also saves time. Furthermore, dog washes have great shower heads, fantastic fur catchers (no clogging your pipes at home!), and lots of towels and tools.
