  Bathing

  Westies have very dry skin and coat so using a harsh shampoo or chemicals will often cause skin irritation and scratching. Westies are neat and clean little dogs that require little bathing. Usually brushing and cleaning with grooming chalk or cornstarch with keep them clean. But for the Georgia "clay-diggers" who are bed-sleepers, a bath in a mild, non-detergent shampoo will do the trick. Oatmeal or mild whitening shampoo is usually very soothing, cleaning without irritation.

  洗澡

  西高有很干的皮肤和毛因此需要用硬毛的浴液否则其他化学制品将经常导致西高去挠皮肤。西高是整洁干净的小狗所以不需要经常洗澡。通常把美容粉笔或玉米淀粉刷他的毛清洗就可以保持它们的清洁。但是对于睡在床上总是掘土,用柔和的无清洁剂的浴液是好的,柔和的增白浴液经常能让他们安心的洗澡。
