Dipping paws in water or wiping off with damps towels have never worked for us. I usually put Hank in our shower stall. It was a detatchable shower head for fast rinse-offs. I also have a Rapid Bath system that I use for regular, full baths. The shower door keeps him from escaping!

If someone can hold it in front of you puppy's nose for a few minutes, I guarantee he'll be more interested in that than whatever you are doing to his ears, feet, etc. If there's no one to help, try strapping one to the spout of your bathroom tub with some duct tape.
I'm looking at my chicken flavor one...

Natural chicken flavors
Cultures milk lecithin
Mixed tocopherols (a preservative & vitamin e)
Ascorbyl palmitate (vitamin c)
Rosemary extract
Green tea extract

Rinse and repeat for bacon adding bacon fat and flavor

Liver substitutes liver flavors for chicken flavors

Ok, first, I love this forum because I'm always learning something new. You are a flippin' genius, why did I never think of this?????? And where were you when I was first dealing with washing my toddlers' hair? I have 3 daughters with long hair and no one like having their hair washed and rinsed, this method would have helped quite a bit with the process had I only known

Second, is there any way you can get us a picture of the golden sleeping in the tub because that sounds absolutely adorable. I bet he was a really neat dog.

Tips for bathtime/rinsing off?

For the OP.... Bear hated the bath, but now he loves getting wet. We turned it into a game. I climb into the tub, turn on the warm water and splash around, giggling which made Bear curious. Now he jumps in and out of the tub no problem. Toweling off is a game too because he loves getting rubbed down. We used to have an issue with cleaning his paws with shampoo cloths because he would try to eat the towelette, but i just tell him to leave it and go about my business and when we're done he gets a treat. Now I can handle his paws with minimal issues. Hang in there and good luck.

I don't remember where I came across the diluted shampoo idea. I didn't come up with it on my own, I think I found it when I was searching on the best shampoo's for Goldens because I had a really hard time getting all of the soap out the first time I gave my pup a bath. I will have to ask my MIL if she has any pic's of Quincy in the tub. They rescued him from an animal shelter. He was a gentle giant. He had to be over 100 pounds. I miss him.

Simba is so cute. Lucy loves the shower..she takes a shower with me. she stands there and I use the hand held attachment to rinse her down after I lather her with shampoo..luckily our bathroom is all tile so I just have to wipe up all the water when we get out...she lets me use the hair dryer after I towel her down... I can't let her in the bathroom everyday when I take my shower or she would join me..she gets a shower about every three weeks.
