What are some positive methods of getting your dog in to the tub at home? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thats another thing. After bathtime encourage her to play. Maybe something really fun that your dog likes to do! She'll remember she gets treats and that she get to do something extra fun if I get a bath!angie7349 said:Lure her in with treats..I always give mine a treat after a bath too.
Is she too heavy for you to pick up and place in the tub? I have to do that with both of my dogs (Bella - 62lbs, Remy - 70lbs.) Neither of them will willingly get in the tub, but they're fine once they're in there.ambulldogpup said:Tried the luring with treats things, once we get near the tub, she slams her breaks on and backs up. I even have the leash on her, and the only way to get her in, is to basically pull her in. She's getting to big for that, and once she's in the tub she's fine, but it's getting her in, that's the problem.
So funny..... yet.... so sick and twisted at the same time........Grizwald said:You will think this is crazy, but one time I was showering, and no one was home, so I left the bathroom door open (I hate steamy vapor in the bathroom, it makes drying my hair take longer).
There was a thunderstorm brewing outside. Abraham, my 65-lb boxer mix, is terrified of storms. Sure enough, while I had a face full of soap and my eyes shut, all the sudden Abe just nosed the shower curtain aside and JUMPED into the shower with me! I suddenly felt his nose against my leg and screamed. I rinsed and opened my eyes and there he was, shaking like a leaf and getting soaked! I was laughing so hard. Poor guy. So I figured what the hell, and grabbed his Dr. Bronner's baby soap and lathered him up right then and there! Yeah, it was WEIRD, I suddenly had that moment of clarity where I was like "I'm showering with my dog! WTF!" but I had him washed and rinsed in 5 minutes. He was too scared of the storm to leave my side, so I had no trouble drying him off. By the time we were done the storm had blown over and he was fine - and clean!!!!!!!
This is how I bathe the other three, but I put Clara in the tub.debs said:Moose gets the hose. He hates the tub and he is to strong for me to pick up or drag into the tub.
lol I'm with ya on that one!!! I get soaked the same amount no matter how I do it.... so ya knowSugarBear said:Is is abnormal to shower with your dog? If it is than I don't but if it's okay than I do :wink:
