Well this was the question I had and what got me to join the forum. Roran needed a good cleaning and in New England it gets pretty cold. I took the advice and opted to use the tub, get the water warm, a nice large cup to poor water all over him, and got my bathroom ready. Well to my surprise with a little coaxing he went right into the tub, didn't shake and even lifted each of his paws front and back to let me clean them. He was soooooo good and let me towel him down prior to him finally getting to shake. I put a couple towels on the floor and he proceeded to dry off with them (another tip I got from the forum). I got my dog at 11 months old, someone brought him to the shelter and said he had to much energy... I expect some other reason, well bottom line he was so good in the tub he must of been use to it.

Lush and Copley get bathed, conditioned and blow dried so much they know the routine. Copley likes it so much he will try to hop in tubs or on grooming tables that arent even his, and he thinks the vet's exam table is a grooming table. It cracks me up that they are so pampered. What Lush hates is when her skunk vendetta earns her hose baths with none of the amenities she is used to, lol. Meanwhile Finn is the opposite. Yes, he will tolerate a bath bc he is a great old dog, he gives a little stink eye to the blow drier and hates it. Tally is a big winnie the pooh, and will be happy with his bath, but does not like having his face dried or his ears cleaned.

Kuyani is wonderful. This is what he does before baths (runs to grandma, trying to escape):



During a bath (quietly pouting):



And after a bath (crazy time):

Jasper never likes going into the bathroom as he knows it means shower time but once in there he is as good as gold and I find that if i talk and sing to him he is as happy as Larry
