Mucho's first bath - 17 weeks [PICS]

We gave Mucho his first bath yesterday. It took us around an hour including drying and brushing. We tried on a simple hair-elastic-thingy but removed it after a few hours.

He liked the water at first but after some time began to shake and didn't stop until we completely dried him. I guess the poor thing was cold.

His hair is now even silkier than before and he smells clean! (The shampoo doesn't have perfume in it, so the final smell is "clean dog", but we're fine with it)

Our professional (human) hair dryer was very useful. Very funny to see his hair moving around like that.

Mucho is such a cutie and looks gorgeous after his bath. He looks quite similar to Tyler at that age, so I could be a bit biased. Enjoy your little man.

Awww socute. But then I'm also biased as he looks very like Charlie. Also looks very sorry for himself.

Did you bath in cold water? I read somewhere that Havanese actually prefer quite warm water and certainly Charlie enjoys the feel of the warm water on his back (not so much his face - hates that).

Mucho is even cuter wet lol

Colbie tolerates the bath but gets cold quickly as well.

We found cranking up the heat beforehand helps.

Make sure everything you need is close at hand before you get him wet.
As we are learning the actually time she is in the sink is getting shorter which helps. Once she is in a soft warm towel she is fine. That is until the hair dryer starts blowing on her. She really hates that.
