As a professional breeder for pomsky, I can say that grooming is an essential part of keeping your Pomsky healthy and happy. One of the most frequent grooming routines is giving your Pomsky a bath. However, it is not as simple as just getting them wet and soaping them up. There are several things you need to consider before, during, and after the bath to ensure that your Pomsky stays healthy and clean. In this article, we will discuss what you need for your Pomsky’s bath.
Before the Bath
Before giving your Pomsky a bath, you should brush their coat thoroughly. This helps remove any loose fur or mats and tangles in their coat. Brushing also stimulates their skin and distributes natural oils throughout their coat, making their fur shiny and healthy.

Trimming your Pomsky’s nails before bathing them is important because they can scratch themselves while trying to shake off water from their coats after a bath.
3. Preparing Supplies
Gather all the necessary supplies before giving your Pomsky a bath. This includes:
During the Bath

3. Rinsing Off Shampoo

1. Drying Your Pomsky
After rinsing off the shampoo, wrap your Pomsky in a towel and gently pat them dry.
2. Brushing Their Coat
After drying your Pomsky, brush their coat again to remove any loose fur or tangles.
3. Rewarding Your Pomsky
Reward your Pomsky with treats and praise after the bath to make it a positive experience for them.
