Eh...ranger puts up with baths in his usual stoic fashion. Though, when you consider a "bath" to him is a hose-bath in the backyard, I'd say he's pretty darn good about it!

So while he doesn't like them, he doesn't dislike them...and he certainly LOVES getting dried off with the towel afterwards.

Wyatt hops right into the tub. He is so easy. Probably has something to do with how he swims pretty much every day in the spring, summer and fall.

Cookie is a good girl, and gets right into the tub even though I know she's not really keen on the idea. Buy hey, she's the one who decided to roll in the mud!

I had to give Ella a bath because she got muddy outside and she HATES baths! She freaked out the entire time. Since she is a pup, did anyone's dogs hate them at first but then begin liking them? I really hope she at least begins to tolerate it because it was a hassle trying to give her one. Lol

Bentley hated his 1st bath at 6 weeks and he's almost 6 months now and still hates them. If it's a filthy mud-hole he thinks water is great, if it's clean water..kryptonite

Brooks will get into the shower, though he obviously doesn't want to, and submits to having the bath-he seems to understand that the bath is important to us so he goes along with it. Afterward, he loves to rub himself against the towel covered floor after the shower, and is almost giddy with excitement once the bath is over.

how funny, I thought all Goldens loved the water. They fight over him at my groomers because he is apparently the easiest dog they ever get to groom. He knows exactly what is expected of him, and he goes in the tub, holds still for everything, holds his paws out on his own. An all around easy as pie dog.

I really thought all Goldens enjoy their baths, because my first one did too. Learn something new every day.

We just gave Vinnie a bath tonight. We said "come on Vinnie let's take a bath" He jumped right in.

The only time Amber willingly got in to tub was when she had a minor incident with a skunk. Not bad enough to be debilitating but bad enough that she stank.

Maddie is still working this whole thing out. She wants in the shower with me and thinks my bathwater is worthy of dropping her balls in. I haven't given her a true bath in a bit. She really, really hates being hosed off with cold water after swimming in the ocean though.
