Spray– Many companies sell waterless shampoos. The shampoos work by spraying on the coat, rubbing it in and then wiping it off with a dry towel.

Foam– Simply apply the foam to your dog with your hands or a towel, and let it sit. Some owners have commented that certain brands can dry out your pet’s coat. Read product reviews and consult your veterinarian before selecting a pet foam.

Wipes– These are moist, pre-treated wipes. To use, run the wipes in the direction of the fur. You may have to go over your dog twice in certain areas if they have a particular large or thick coat.

Waterless Towel– These towels are similar to wipes, except they are larger sizes and need to be moistened with water before use. There is no need to apply additional shampoo because the cleaning solution is woven into the towel.

The product that works best for one pet with a short coat may not be suitable for pets with longer fur. Always avoid getting water or cleaning shampoo in your pet’s eyes or ears because it can cause severe irritation. Only use pet-friendly products as human shampoos and hair care can cause itching and dryness.
