So my dog, totally rolled in something rank. It was soooo horrible smelling so i had to bathe him

Well then i was like CR topic mwuahahahah. Yup i guess i can say i'm addicted hah.

Since i normaly have medium sized dogs, i just normally take him into the shower with me. I was him, than wash myself so i get all the dog hair off me. Why not kill two birds with one stone. Plus i either use Dawn soap or anti bug and itch stuff

So how do you wash your dog, and what do you use?

I sure as hell don't shower with them! My Rott likes showers so it's no problem other than his size, and my Shar pei is scared of water like a cat. I usually have to chase him down and carry him into the bathroom. If I ask him if he wants a bath, he darts!

My dog absolutely hates water, will leg it at the sight of it. So I usually grab her leash tie her to a pole, and wash her down with flea shampoo and what not But this topic has reminded me, it's hot and she could probably do with a bath.. I shall do that soon

No dogs, but I have two cats. Had to give one of them a shower today after taking her to the vet. She wails a lot, but she doesn't scratch.

Washing my dog is a two man job, one holds her and the second washes her.

She's the most pitiful looking dog I've ever seen when she's getting washed, and she makes really wierd noises.. Always makes me laugh.

Giving her treats usually puts her on good behaviour, but she'll try to escape the second she realizes she's not getting any more.

Hah, that how i was raised with my dogs as i was little. I'd always had mellow dogs who it took a little bit to get into the shower but once they where in they had not a problem with it. So as a kid, they'd set me in the shower with them and tell me to wash him. So it's not like i'm some crazy animal freak hah.

But ya my dog knows when he's showering. he'll try and run but he listens to well to get very far. So as soon as he gets in the bathroom he'll jump right in the tub. Since he know's that he's got to shower.

Plus it's funny cause when he smells bad, and knows he's rolled around in something he'll look at you and kinda pout. He'll tilt his head down, cause he knows he's going straight to the bath, very intelligent and cute hah

Back when I had a dog I'd put her in the laundry tub and use dog shampoo. This was for a golden retriever ~50 lbs.

My dog is a pampered pooch.

She gets a nice hot bath in the tub, and a shower as well. Scented shampoo and conditioner followed by a warm blow-dry, a treat and a nap.

When she awakes, she gets sprayed with a nice-smelling doggie-perfume and then proceeds to laze.

Yes, she's spoiled rotten.

Btw, she's a (will be this month) 10 year old American Eskimo.

Dog washing soap, it's cheap and effective, warm water gently applied over top, softly get the suds in, rinse, and "ATTEMPT" to dry the dog(s) before he/she/both of them run around the house shaking dry >_>

I shower with my pit-mix once a week. I just use the same shampoo I wash my hair with.

He loves the shower. He's always trying to catch the water as it falls.

I never washed my German short-hair pointer, but he was more of the outdoors type. Always out exploring and what not.
I can't let my pit-mix out by himself, people get too scared when they see pit.

I used to bathe my lab in the tub as well but then the hair started piling up .....

Anyways, I do it one of two ways depending how lazy I am and how nice I want to be to the dog.

1. Go to the tub and run medium-hot water. At the right temperature where it's warm, you fill up a bucket and mix in the soap you're gonna use. Take the dog outside and use one of those big floppy car sponges and wipe them down gently. Then get the hose to wash them off.

2. Get one of those nozzles for your hose that switches to different pressures and different ways to use the water. Get soap. Put soap on the dog. Spray using mild-medium pressure in a spread out pattern. Wash away all the soap. DONE!

and then dry the dog.

One dog chases a hose when I spray it and I do that 3 times a week so he almost never needs a bath. The other one is so old and she gets so dirty ..... I just use the second option once a month.
