So I gave the dog a shower today for the second time. That's right, I went for my shower and he came along with me. My dog is very small so he just sat in the corner while I showered and didn't seem too happy about it.

I sprayed him all over with water, then stood him up with his front paws on my arm so I could get his underside.

So he sat and waited (or dreaded) while I finished my shampooing and soaping. Then I get out his doggie shampoo and lathered him up (he seemed to like this as he was wagging his tail a bit).

Then waited a bit, and got the water again and washed him all off. Then I got out, dryed off, got dressed, brushed teeth, etc. while he waited patiently in the shower stall. I figured this was good because he'd shake a bit and not be so wet when he came out.

So out he came, I bundled him in a towel and dried him off, but he was really itchy from the water and is now running around the house shaking and scratching at the floor, but he's all clean.....

So I pondered, how do other Arsians watch their pets? Unfortunatley I have no pics because i thought it might scare you to have shower pics of my dog, and in the back of your mind you'd sit there "he's naked while he's taking these pictures"..... So no you.

Sounds like you did pretty good. The only thing I would add is if you live in a cold climate leaving your dog in shower to “shake off” could make them really cold. It is important to dry thoroughly with towel and then dry with blow dryer at least half way. I bathe my dogs once a week with me in the shower. Dont like stinky pets!! Lol
