Special dog bathtub in garage. Features handheld shower head, hot & cold water and best part is no stooping over to wash the dogs.

That way they do not automatically associate the sound of the water with a bath. Sometimes we have them jump in and out of the empty bathtub. Neither one is a fan of baths, but we don't have a problem getting them bathed.Location is Everything: You want to make bathing a positive experience for your dog. This means avoid spraying him with the cold water directly from the garden hose! (unless he likes that kind of thing!) In warm weather you can choose a sunny spot where you will avoid making a mud pit and fill a washtub with a few inches of water. Then you can rinse your dog with the water that is warming in the hose. If this option doesn’t work for you, there are outdoor bathing tubs that have a temperature control valve built into them. These tubs are raised (preventing an aching back and knees!) and often hook into the water supply of your washing machine. Of course, you can always bathe your dog in the bathtub! I recommend getting a detachable shower sprayer with multiple spray settings to aid in the wetting and rinsing process. It is also advisable to purchase a “no slip” rubber mat to prevent your dog from sliding around the tub (and scratching the ceramic surface with her nails).Wow, we have just been doing it in the bathtub with a big plastic cup.

Some pet owners aren’t too keen on combining their dog’s bath with their own, and that’s understandable.Teach your dog to go to his bed or safe place when he is not anxious and reward him for calm behavior. Some dogs feel safe when hiding in the bathtub or shower stall. This has not really been fully explained, but may have something to do with static electricity. Many clients tell me their dogs hide behind the toilet or in the bath tub during storms. Dr. Dodman, a renowned behaviorist theorizes that the metal pipes in the bathroom act as an electrical grounding device. By grounding himself to the earth, some static electrical charge is released and the dog feels calmer. Counterconditioning may help.
