My husband bathes Bama sometimes. But lately it's a team effort. ;-)

My husband cleans all the dogs eyes in the evening, I do in the morning, he will also brush, he is not good at dematting...I never use a slicker brush and don't own one, so I am happy that if I am away he at least tidy's them up a bit. A bath is beyond his abilities at this time...it could change if there were a need.

Knew we could count on you Dave - you never disappoint!!

My husband has never tried to brush/comb the boys and I don't even want to try to imagine where a bath might go. He gives me the blank stare on pretty much anything I say or ask him to do! Augie and Finn would have to go into puppy cuts for sure, and be taken to a groomer for baths. He DOES know how to take them out to potty!!

LOL! Mine can't tell the difference between puppy shampoo and regular shampoo. I have to point it out every time. He does wash and condition and I spray off and dry.

My husband has been responsible for bathing Charlie but I wouldn't let him touch Lucy. He too, has said that if anything happened to me that he'd shave Lucy.

Sometimes I think he pretends he doesn't understand, just so I'll do things. : They ain't as dumb as they appear!

Hey, I am OK with him being a grooming idiot as long as he continues to cook every night!
