Bathing your Havanese



Does your Havanese enjoy bath time or run for the hills? Do you have any tips to share?

Willow doesn't seem to mind. She seems to like the warm water running on her. I used to have a dog that if you even said the word "bath" you would have to drag her out from under the bed!

The only part Django likes is the actual bathing, the warm water on his body. A little spa treatment. Sometimes you can see him sinking into the sink, enjoying every moment. But that's it. He hates the clippers, the blow dryer, everything else about grooming.

Sassy tolerates the bath. She doesn't try to run away just stands there and takes it.

Both my dogs hate the bathing. It starts as a war, but they eventually surrender. Both LOVE the blow dryer, probably because I just sit on the bed and have them on my lap. They fall asleep, and my older boy actually nudges for me to turn it back on when I turn it off. Even my puppy loves it. I comb and massage her, and she flops right into it. I swear it's the only time she stops moving during the day. I even find it meditative, and look forward to it.

Rudy hates the dryer. Do you comb his hair away from his eyes while you dry him.? If I don't comb it back as his hair is drying, he looks like one of the Beatles.

The Bandit hates the bath, but the Ninja doesn't seem to mind. Neither want to be blow dried or brushed, but they tolerate it fairly well. The Ninja is much better with being combed than the Bandit, but the Ninja is a messy little guy. I swear he is filthy five minutes after a bath.

Baci tolerates baths. I still don't have a dryer, so can't comment on that. He is very good with nail trims.

I feel fortunate that Whimsy seems to really enjoy her bath. She could do without the nail trim after the bath, but a few treats with that and she's good about it.
