    Default Does not like bath time!

    My little guy absolutely hates baths.
    Any tips on how to get him to calm down while in the tub? He is due for one this weekend. I give them every other week and he bucks like a bronco every time!

    I had to give Brutus treats to get him comfy in the beginning and then after a couple times he forgot about the treats and it was all about the water! See Brutus loves putting his face in water, and then he just starts drinking the water and could careless he is in the bath
    Everyone wants to kiss a bullie

    I hear ya! You should have heard Cooper and Gracie squealing like pigs on their first bath. Now Gracie loves water and Cooper use to hate baths but he has gotten use to them. Just keep giving him baths the more you do the more he will get use to it and won't be throwing those fits in the tub! Cooper is 7 months and he just started not having a fit about 2 months ago!

    This was their first bath at around 10 weeks old....The last pic the look on Gracie's face explains everything! LOL I love that pic!

    I sing to the ladies so they are tricked into thinking bath time us fun time.

    A good way to get them to at least behave is to take a dollop of peanut butter and put it on the upper part of the tub. They get so busy licking it off they forget where they are and it might make the bath a better experience for him. We on the other hand have a lover of the tub. She loves to drink water and god forbid you leave the bathroom door open, she loves to jump in and sit in there.

    Lola doesn't love her bath, but she tolerates it. She paces the entire time she's in there!
