Apple cider vinegar has multiple properties, but among them, it will also help your dog's hair stay in better condition, and deodorized.

- Do not use any type of dry shampoo that is not specially designed for veterinary use, it could cause an allergic reaction.
- Do not apply any type of conventional cologne to keep your dog cleaner, this could irritate the skin and damage it.
