Bathing a puppers!!!

Well everyone wish me lots of luck getting my dog in the tub and clean before his vet appointment tomorrow.. I hate having to bath him myself inside since he tends to act like a prissy girl and does what sounds like the equivalent of screaming. LOL!!! So is it easy for you to bath you animal in the house or do you send them off to the groomers for their cleanings?

LOL. The only way I can get mine in the tub is to get stripped down and get in there with her. We shower together and I get covered in her hair and she gets clean. It's the brushing her out afterwards that gets tricky. But at least she doesn't squeal like the girl she is! ROFL

I know white shows the dirt pretty easy. So was my WHite Fang but he was easy to bath And he was so white it would hurt your eyes to look at him in the sun!

I don't have too much trouble getting my dog in the bathtub. He resists going in, but once I drop him in, he just sits there and lets me wash him. I find that encouraging him and saying "good boy" a lot helps him to not try to run away. I also put some toys in the tub for him to play with. Good luck with your dog!

thanks.. I'll need all the luck I can get but I can honestly say that he will not be a happy puppy no matter how nice or comforting or encouraging I'm being he'll want to run for the hills and run for his life.!!!!

I dont use a groomers i cant justify paying someone to do something that I can do myself my dogs are big and bathing them is a pain but it has to be done I have to do it outside with the garden hose because they are so big I used to do it inside in the tub until my old boy got to old to get in and out of the tub on his own he doesnt like baths but he tolerates the process my young girl hates baths and sounds like we are killing her when its her turn

Hi bella! What kind of dog is he? Is he a large or small? The reason I'm asking is because having both types, I can tell you how I bathed mine. The small ones I bathed in the kitchen sink or the medium ones in the bath tub and the large ones, I'd tie up to the fence and bathe them outdoors IF the weather is decently warm. I don't use dog shampoo either. I use Dial body wash with the spring water scent and I made sure our dogs were covered with suds that they look like they've turned white. It's the only way to get that doggy smell out of them. I'm always making light of the situation and joke around as I'm washing my dogs in hopes they'll lighten up but it never works but at least I try!! lol As if the dogs are speaking but through me, I say, "I'm not a human bean! I'm a dog! I'm supposed to smell like a dog not a human bean!! LMBO They just stand there wishing I'd hurry up! lol So to answer your question, I wash my dogs at home. It's too expensive to have the groomers do it especially as often as they need it which is about 2 or 3 times a month.

My dog Petey, who passed away a while back, really didn't mind getting a bath. As long as I kept a hand on his back and talked quietly to him he'd stand still and let me wash him. It was funny watching him roll all over on his back trying to dry off LOL [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

Well good luck. We wash ours. He is now a year old or will be on the 16th and he is a chocolate lab. I don't like giving him a bath in the house, because he is so big and leaves so much hair in the tub. It has just been to cold to give him one outside but it is warming up so he is going to get a great bath soon.

Take some of his favourite toys with you when you bathe him. Give him treats. Make bath time fun. My Lucy is still a big wuss in spite of the fact that she loves water. I do her under the hose while she is tied up with her lead. We get into all sorts of trouble because she keeps trying to get away from the water....lol.

It's starting to get nice out but I was just told that we are going to have more snow so I'm upset I was thinking I could start bathing outside again after this week but it looks like I'm not going to get the chance to do so. grrr.

Hi bella, So how old is puppers? He sure is a pretty boy. I laughed out loud when you described his whining. My Dexter hates the bath. He acts like I'm having a good time. Thankfully he's a small dog. He's 5 mos. and I hope he doesn't get any bigger. He doesn't whine yet but he hates every minute of the bath and with his long hair, I have to bathe him once a week. But I adore him and he is worth it. Good luck with puppers.xoxoxo leenie
