When bathing a Chihuahua, tie the dog securely, use lukewarm water, massage the shampoo into all parts of body, and rinse the shampoo off completely. Gently towel dry Chihuahuas and follow up with a high-velocity blow dry using instructions from a professional dog groomer in this free video on grooming dogs.

My name is Sammi at the Utah Animal Care Center in West Bountiful, Utah. I'm here to demonstrate how to give a chihuahua a bath. We have Sally helping us out here, she's a Daschund, we don't have any chihuahuas here at the clinic right now. When giving a bath, you always want to make sure that they are tied in securely, so that they don't jump out and slip. You'll also want to make sure that you use a nice lukewarm water so they don't get too cold in the bath. You want to make sure to massage the shampoo into all of the body parts, getting the loose dirt, lift it up, out to the surface. You can also use a rubber curry to go along their whole body to get all of the loose and dead hair out. You'll want to make sure that you rinse them off completely. Any shampoo that is left on there could cause dry skin, which would cause dandruff and itching. When you're finished the shampoo out completely, you want to gently towel dry her, followed up by a high velocity blow dry.
