Mama Corals look of complete terror says it all

It’s always an interesting day when it comes time for bath day!  Needless to say my crew does not think of the event as being enjoyable.

When our pups were little we used a TON of positive reinforcement with uber high value treats.  Things like hot dogs, steak, fish, sausage, etc.  So now they, at least, tolerate bath time without too much issue.

“If I pretend I don’t see you I won’t have to take a bath, right?”

The worst part for them is getting their faces wet.  Unfortunately it’s a necessary evil because we spend so much time in the yard.  The amount of dirt that these dogs pick up blows my mind.  The two lighter colored dogs, Cece and Boo, are easier to keep clean simply because it’s easy to tell when they are dirty.  The black dogs are a whole different story.  They always look clean, but rarely is that the case!

Did I mention that at last count the dogs are weighing in at 95lbs, 80lbs, 65lbs, and 47lbs?? Bath day is a serious workout!!

I use an all natural shampoo called Earthbath Naturals.  It’s all natural and not terrible for the environment, no chemicals, yada yada…It works great, is good for the dogs health, and good for the environment, win all around in my book.  Now on to the hilarity of bath day!

Why are you doing this to me dad?!?
