my gsd hates baths. its a whole family job at bath time for him. the frenchies dont seem to mind their baths. they just stand still in the tub and tolerate the whole process. AFTER their baths they go nuts, get the "zoomies" and race through the house at warp speed. that last 5-10 minutes, then its snacktime and they settle on their bed, well actually its my bed, they only think its theirs, for a little nap.
My dog, Cookie, doesn't seem to mind them. It's not her favorite thing but she tolerates them very well. My family thinks I give her too many baths but she gets so dirty from playing outside or with her cousins. :( I'd rather her get dirty and have fun than be clean and bored inside. :)
My dogs must be strange! They love to get baths! But... Only in the summer! When it's warm we take the shampoo and the hose and they go nuts they love it! But in the winter if I do them in the bathtub, YOU ARE KILLING THEM! They are so funny! I guess like people they have there own Quirks! LOL
My red heeler, tolerates her bath. I laugh and tell everyone she goes to her happy place in her head, she just stares off into space. She will not make eye contact at all. She just looks past my head. Now the drying off part is fun. I lay towels on the floor and she rolls and rolls on them making funny noises the whole time.
I'm not sure if Merphy likes it or not. He loves the sprinklers and rain, but he hated when I squirted him with the hose today. Then he got an hour and a half long bath, and he just sat there the entire time. His tail was straight down though, so he must have just been tolerating it. After the bath though, he gets super excited and runs around and rolls around, jumps on everything. It was funny today, he was so hyper and then I said softly "Do you wanna treat?" and he stopped dead in his tracks and sat for his treat. He likes getting brushed, but not combed.
My poodle has to take a bath at least once a weel because she jumps in allt he puddles she can find, rolls in all the dirt she can find and digs like she's crazy.. It rains alot over here :)
But she knows the drill when she gets in she'll put on her sad irritated face and walk over to the bath tub. She hates the bathing part but she stands still just waiting till I'm done and then she races around like schumacer in a new ferrari chasing her tales rubbing on all the carpets she can find when she's done she sneeze and look up at me saying.. "hej what about another bath" She's seven now.. wonder if she's ever gonna calm down. *hehe*
My dogs dont get baths very often.Maybe 4 times a year.Usually less....
But when it is bath time they know that if they sit still than they can egt out faster withou being in any trouble with me.They love the blow dryer.They just lay down an let me blow dry away.My rottie I have enevr gave him a bath so Im not sure how he will do.I htink he will be a handfull! my cockers hsould like the water because of their breed but they hate it.They dont like baths but tolerate it.
Strangely, my shihtzu/toy poodle mix... loves a bath. I have to be careful, everytime i'm in the shower/bath she will jump in with me. It never fails. lol. She's coming up on 4 months, and growing like a weed. It's getting harder and harder for me to keep her from jumping over the tub and into my bathwater. but, it sure is cute. Dogs like this look like drowned RATS when they're wet.
I tried to give Koda a bath last night...I'm the one who ended up with the bath. The darn dog sits there and shakes the entire time....getting water and soap everywhere! He doesn't like baths. Isn't that a bit odd for a golden retriever? He dries off real quick though...so that's good.
