    Default Bathtime!!!!

    Just gave Bear a bath. He is acting a fool and running around doing piggy runs. Rubbing his head on the carpet and literally jumping off all of the furniture. I had to put his hoodie on because he doesn't have a robe yet. Now he will be all fluffy for more cuddles. be jealous.

    How do you bath your bully? What do you use?

    I wash him with a standard puppy shampoo but want to get some stuff from the pantry store as soon as I am out. I wash him with a rag and give him a finger massage, his nails are done, and wrinkles all done. I have to use the tub because he is too big for the kitchen sink. He is indifferent about baths he neither loves nor hates it. he just stands there and actually tries to drink the water. He likes to shake all the water off and get everything wet.

    @mammyglicks ... I AM jealous... Gracie smells sooooo good and is sooooooo soft right after a bath. Selsun Blue and a dog shampoo is what we use.

    @BruceP how did you find out about the Selson Blue? Are you using it because princess Gracie has alot of white on her? I am trying to find a good shampoo for Lola who is mostly white. She looks great after a bath but not glistening white or anything. Both Brodie and Lola loves baths but they CANNOT have a bath together...to much for me to handle. Not so much while they are in the tub but afterwards. They are like maniacs! They are more high spirted after a bath than they are after a good ol .

    Was using Earthbath from the Pet Pantry, but switched to John Paul Tea Tree Oil. Moses has some skin issues... I have no evidence that the shampoo was causing it, just switching to see if it makes a difference, and the jury is still out. John Paul's shampoo really made our Shih Tzu look good and feel soft though.

    I use a prescription shampoo that is for yeast and anti-fungal from the vet, it makes him very soft and smells great. And yes he drinks the water the whole time I am bathing him, then is a wild man afterwards doing the same things as Bear, rubbing and jumping.

    Im pretty sure we heard about Selsun Blue here on EBN. And to be honest Selsun Blue by itself isn't a great smell so we do a final wash with the oatmeal dog shampoo improves the smell. Selsun Blue is supposed to prevent dry scalp.

    I use an oatmeal shampoo and wash her with a dog mitt in the tub and then hose her off. She hates getting in the tub but once she does, she is fine. I literally have to drag her in and she shakes like a leaf but once she is in she must remember it is okay! She loves the pampering after...wrinkles, nails, ears! That reminds it is bath time maybe tomorrow!

    I used to use a really great smelling shampoo from Simple Solutions- Refresh. The great smell seemed to last so much longer than other shampoos. But the pet stores don't carry it, so I got something else I am not too crazy about. Going to get some from CPP soon, when I place another order with all the things and need... and all the things I want!

    We use an aloe + oatmeal shampoo that we got from Stig's vet for when he had hives. Then rinse with water, then water and vinegar last. We use Johnson's baby shampoo for his face.

    We'd like to continue the regimen even though his allergies are now under control. We're running out of shampoo and thinking of getting the aloe and oatmeal one from Carolina Pet Pantry too. Has anyone tried it? Was thinking of getting bulk but going to try the small bottle first.

    I use Tropiclean hypoallergenic shampoo, got it from Petco. It's soap and fragrance free so it's really gentle on his skin.
