Some like it, some don't. How does your golden react to a bath?

Beamer just stands there and takes it in the bath tub. He doesn't like it but he puts up with it. I haven't had a chance to bathe him outside yet, but I will this summer.

Jacks puts up with the baths. Because he gets a bath every week practically because of swimming, he's gotten to the point where he follows me into the bathroom and hops into the tub when I tell him to.

The shampooing part - he practically falls over with bliss over the massage he gets. The part where I'm rinsing him off, probably is the part he doesn't like.

But he really is happy when out of the tub and zooming everywhere + getting toweled off. He has to stand in the tub and wait for me to go grab a towel to hold up in front of me like a shield before I release him from the bathtub. Every time, he hops out, comes running to right in front of me and shakes. Nerd.

ETA - Oh, I should say the shaking off part is allowed because I will always follow up and clean the bathroom next. I have a routine where the rugs and everything get put up on the counter. I mop the floor and dry it and the rugs go back down.

Both Gabby and Levi enjoys a shower.. Sunday Levi actually went into the shower first time, without us calling him, he just saw hubby getting out the towels and shampoo and he trotted along like a proud "horse", head held up high! No issues. They both stand quite still, and it seems like they enjoy... Its the getting out part that is "hard work"!!!

Max hates it. He knows that he has to have done something bad to get one (like swim in the polluted creek). He doesn't like shampoo or tubs.

Caue and Oak both dislike but tolerate baths. They get lots of swimming year round so I rarely find myself needing to give them a bath. Almost all of their grooming is just an undercoat rake and a slicker.
