Not only do mine hate to get wet (bath or rain) but Tyler hates it if anyone in the house is wet. If the bathroom door isn't shut he's standing at the ready next to the sink to tongue dry the nearest damp leg. Come in from the rain, Tyler tries to lick you dry as well.
Bath time….big sigh and humming the "Mission Impossible" (TV) theme song....first, the covert operation to prep the bathroom. Shut the door, get the doggie day spa items ready, pull out the special towels, wrap the curtains out of the way, set the water temp, then casually stroll out to kidnap the first victim. Once in the tub and dampened, our first victim gives in and is quiet and cooperative. Meanwhile, the 2nd in line sits either outside the door or inside the bathroom (tried both, doesn't make a difference) and whines, moans, screams, whatever they deem necessary to stop the perceived torture.
Bath #1 done, then the B500 starts, either alone or with the recently escaped companion. IF (and it's a big if) victim #2 doesn't escape through typical B. cooperation and practiced evasive tactics, the whole ordeal is done again, same op, just a role reversal. Capture, relent, whine, moan, release, B500 madness, then tongue dry each other so they both smell like Basenji spit.
After all that (especially the mutual tongue drying) they then smell again as if they need a bath:D
I guess I was saying, in my long winded answer, that the bath time here is easy, it's all the other crap that goes into it/goes after it, that makes it seem like an ordeal. Needless to say, we love it!!
