An appropriate age to start giving a puppy a bath would be around 1 month but if needed you can give a puppy a bath earlier then that but be very careful not to get water in the ears or eyes.

What age should a puppy be getting their first bath?

Your puppy will be safer if you wait until it is ten weeks before giving a tub bath, especially if is a small breed. Your puppy won't have a well developed immune system until it is 12 weeks, so the closer to that age, the better. You can give it a sweet- smelling safe bath with men's shaving cream. The cheapest ones are the best, as they don't have so much oil and additives. I use Colgate. Lemon or mint is fine. Just rub the puppy down with the foam, and dry with a towel or washcloth. This also makes a nice touch-up bath, or cold-weather bath between groomings for older dogs.

I would recommend giving your puppy a bath when its about 5-6 months old unless it imeditally needs one,id recomend filling the bath to about a inch above its paws and washing him or her with a soft cloth or sponge with dog shampoo (one with soap that's easy on the eyes just in case would be best) and rinsing him with the shower head. to make him or her calm you should give it treats or say "good boy/girl!" i hope this helps!
