Gave Maggie her first bath in the new wash area in the garage. It worked great! I have questions about how to dry her with my new force dryer. Do you start off on high and then move to low as she dries or opposite of that? I hear go against the grain at first and then with but I am also hearing varying opinions on that as well. Thanks for any pro tips. Jules

Thank you Kate! Going to try this next time. I kind of blew it all the direction of this hair growth this time and she still seemed a bit damp :(

OK, I know nothing about washing/drying, as I take Archie to a groomer...I definitely know my limits! Just ask my kids what it was like growing up when I decided I could cut their hair...actually just look at a couple of school photos 😆😂🤣. I did, however, have to pop on to say that your Maggie is ADORABLE!!!!!!!
Thanks Julie. I tried my older son's hair once, that was all it took!! :)

How do you get her in that tub, by the way? I wish I had outside temperature controls for hot/cold water. We have terrible water pressure in our home. It's much easier to bathe Logan outside in the summer.

Edit: Ahhhh. I googled. I see the back is open?
Thanks for the info on the drying. Yeah, she just jumps in. I do pick her up to put her on the table but she only weighs 50lbs. My back is loving not having to bend over the bathtub in the house!!

Jules, that is a fantastic setup!! My back is incredibly jealous; with the cooler weather, in a pinch we have Barkley in the bathtub (so we can use warm water), and my back is sooooo sore after. Maggie looks amazing! Our babies are growing up nicely 💖
It is hard to believe 3 years have gone by so quickly!!
