Dog at the Beach
In a few months we are taking Rocky to the beach for a week. He loves to go in the water and rolls around in the sand.
I know bathing him everyday is bad for their skin, but what about the salt water? I am also wondering about his ears also.
Can I clean his ears everyday? I would really hate for him to end up with an ear infection due to the salt water.
Also what about giving him a bath? I would think that all of the salt/sand would be bad for his skin, but so is bathing him everyday. I am thinking just giving him a bath the night before we leave to wash all the sand and salt off of him might be the best thing to do. Kind of pointless to do it while we are there considering he will be in the ocean everyday.
I am sure there are alot of people that take their dogs to the beach often, but I have only taken him once and am just curious how you handle this with your pup? Do I need to get any special supplies for this? I want to make sure that I have what I need to ensure he has fun at the beach, but at the same time make sure he does not end up with medical issues at the same time.
