Bath Time!

After our trip to the dog park, Oscar was pretty muddy, which meant that it was bath time for the little guy. He is relatively well-behaved at bath time, though he usually tries to jump out of the tub at least once or twice during each bath. I keep meaning to get a mat for the tub, because it gets a little slippery and he gets nervous when he loses his footing. I brush him before I bathe him, because if there are any mats or tangles in his fur, they will get worse after they get wet. I used a hair dryer to dry him off the very first time I gave him a bath, but it scared him and I also read that you can accidentally burn a dog when using a hair dryer without realizing it, so since then I have just towel-dried him.  I think I may have to look into getting a different shampoo, because Oscar always rubs his face like crazy on the rug after he takes a bath. I think his eyes get itchy, even though we use a tearless puppy shampoo. Bath time was a success, and now he smells good and his fur is nice and soft.

He hopped into the tub without me even asking!

Having a drink...

Okay, let's get this over with.

Looking a bit like a drowned rat. Poor little guy... 

Now it's time to air-dry.

After our baths, we rubbed our face like crazy too but we do it on the sofa! Maybe it's not the shampoo. Just like how we like to do zoomies after our baths.

Cutie Oscar!
What a good boy to hop in the tub!
All the dogs I've had have always rubbed their faces after a bath or swimming - not sure why though.

Interesting! Good to know it's probably not the shampoo, but just a dog thing - I like the smell of this shampoo and, more importantly, we still have a lot left and I wouldn't have wanted to throw it out! :) Ah, the things you learn when you're a first-time dog owner.

And good point about the zoomies - there are definitely zoomies after baths. Lots of them.

Oscar is such a good boy! I did learn from my vet the other day that you should never put shampoo directly on the dog. He said to mix it in a container with warm water to delute it a bit and then pour it on...who knew? I learn something new everyday. Oscar is a handsome boy!
