Can't Cope With The Crying ...

Help Me !

Alfie is now 1 year old and up to recently I've been able to wash him in the shower. He never liked it as he hates getting wet but he tolerated it as he couldn't get away. Unfortunately I now have back problems and can't bend so I have to wash him in the sink. The utility room has the largest sink in the house so I have just tried to do him in there but he cried (screamed actually) the whole time. Also he was constantly fighting to get away. I feel positively evil !

I spent 10 minutes at the start acquainting him to the sink with a chew treat enticing him to get into the sink. I wet him very gradually via my hand but as soon as he felt the water he went ballistic.

Can anyone suggest anything that may help ? Anything ?

Jolanta's article is as good as any. http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/pet...our-dog-a-bath 3 pages this is something all breeders should be implementing.
