I mean no disrespect but, why do you need her to like water and being dressed up?

My chi hates water except when he's drinking it, which I think is quite normal for the breed. Won't go out in the rain, and even runs into the bathroom to lick the horrible stuff off my legs the minute I get out of the shower. I don't dress him up a whole lot - just t-shirts mostly - and he doesn't mind that. I can't say how he'd take to more elaborate costumes...

Mine hate water. Tiko has learned on a hot day, having a little water poured on his back cools him off and now he tolerates that. I only put shirts or jackets on my dogs when it's very cold out. They don't tolerate the cold very well.

When you say he hates water, I assume you mean at bath time! That can be a pain. If it is bath time, where do you bathe him? In the tub or in the sink? The sink is probably the best place because it isn't so scarey as the tub.

Angel doesn't "like" baths, he tolerates them. I just make it quick, at nine pounds how long could it take me! Then we go to the downstairs bathroom and get dried with the hairdryer! He likes that because it is warm!

For clothes, I don't dress him up. He wears a coat or something in the winter only, unless we have an exceptionally cool evening. He has such a shiny coat, I love looking at it! hehehe

It's not that I need her to, it's just that my little nieces would like to I am thinking of getting one for them. Also I know some like to get in the water and being dressed up I was wondering if they came with that desire or was trained to tolerate these things.
