Default Jazz does not like baths.

Jazz is due for her yearly, so we're heading in to the Vet's tomorrow morning to get everything taken care of. I usually give them a bath before their routine Vet appointments. Honestly it's really the only time they get one. They just don't get dirty and they don't smell, so why put them through something they hate any more than necessary?

Anyway, Jazz is not a bath time fan. Really though, I don't think I've ever met a dog who was.

Here she is, very very NOT happy!



Her tongue looks so long here lol!


I threw Tango in there after Jazz. I'll take him with me when I take Jazz in, just for the socialization. Also I want to get him weighed, I think he's put on a few ounces and I need to catch it early so I can cut back on his treats/food without it being a huge ordeal.

I clean the tub after each wash. I found it amusing to see two completely different clumps of hair clogging up the drain.

Very cute photos. For some odd reason my little one seems to really like a bath. I use a sprayer and the laundry room sink. She is a long coat so she is delightfully fluffy and soft after a bath. I bathe her once every 10-14 days. Hope this isn't too often as I read somewhere once a month. She doesn't seem to get irritated skin and she doesnt resist the process so why not!

Oh Ronni, she looks so precious! I love it. How big is Jazz? Her legs look almost as tiny as Bella's, who is around 2.4lbs now.

How cute! I gave Percy a bath a few days ago and he was fine the first couple minutes then got impatient and started whining and trying to climb up my arm to safety. Good luck at the vets!

10-14 days is definitely too often. The shampoo strips the natural oils off the
body. Eventually your dog's coat will get dry, and become more prone to
dandruff and mats. Some breeds have naturally oilier coats and may require
more baths, but the Chi isn't one of them. If you want to help your LC Chi
have a beautiful coat, brush her frequently, it will help get rid of loose & dead
hair and distribute the natural oils which will keep your dog's skin and coat
healthy. Also adding fish oil to her food twice per week will make her coat
silkier and her skin supple. I have a very active Chihuahua, she walks 4 times
per day and does get dirty, so what I do to avoid bathing frequently is I rinse
her paws and belly with lukewarm water after each walk, no shampoo. And
she gets bathed properly about every 6 weeks. Her coat looks great.

Great info for a new dog mom. I do brush her daily and it does seem to keep her silky. It does kind of gross me out when I think about what she walks through and on. I have used doggie wipes on her feet!

Cute! She obviously is not enjoying it.

Both of mine hate baths.. I have to close the bathroom door or Penny will jump out of the bathtub and make a run for it, covered in soap. I only bathe them when they roll in poop or something gross.
