Teach Your Dog To Look at you when you ask:
Lots of us have dogs that are not fond of getting a bath. I am asked about the best way to get your dog comfortable with taking a bath! Piper the adorable Australian Shepherd puts on a great show in my new video!
[Music] Today’s video is sponsored by pet flow Comm today we’re in Lakeview a Neighborhood in New Orleans at the Awesome muddy mutts a do-it-yourself dog Wash and we’re going to try and get Piper the Australian Shepherd puppy Comfortable with taking a bath now this Should be interesting She’s a very bright dog but as many of You know dogs are not very naturally Accepting of water if you want more How-to dog videos make sure you click Thumbs up also make sure you’re Subscribed like me on Facebook to link In the description now I’ve got to be Honest with y’all I have no idea how This video is gonna go I mean what we’re Talking about puppies and water it can Be crazy and get out of control at a Moment’s notice but fingers crossed Let’s go inside and see how it goes Corrine you’ve given Piper a few baths Already since you’ve had her right tell Me how that’s gone she is not a fan of The bath she tries to escape the tub she Tries to avoid the water why don’t we Take her off leash and let her acclimate Be prepared to take 10 15 even 20 Minutes to let your dog just kind of Explore the bathtub and hang out and Maybe even do some basic training in the Bathroom looks like she’s interested in Getting in look she just walked right up
Here makes our job easy doesn’t it Piper Is comfortable with going in for just a Little bit right and then she’s like I Don’t know I want to get out so we’re Gonna try to get her comfortable with Staying in there a little bit longer First – okay good CVI contact everything Stems from look at me eye contact is so Vital when teaching a dog if you need to Know how to teach that check the Description and see she’s just Encouraging right there good day nice Work we haven’t turned on the water cuz We’re just trying to get her comfortable With one thing at a time that is the Ideal way to get your dog comfortable With anything that could be potentially Stressful to them well you’re dialed in Here that’s great next step simply Turning on the water and letting her get Comfortable with the water of running I’ve got it to where it’s just gonna Kind of drizzle at first there and let’s Go ahead and roll Orchard I like that You’re staying here with the water buddy I’d say that you keep enjoying yourself So far yeah is it good And so this is a good outcome right yeah I’m really enjoying the fact that she’s Enjoying it one of the great things About teaching your dog to get Comfortable with getting bathed is that Builds trust it’s mean You and your dog and any opportunity to
Do that is one that we should always Take I’m gonna actually turn up the flow Of the water just a little bit because We’re gonna need to have a little bit of A stronger flow than that when we Actually go to give her about I don’t Want her to get struggle so I’m actually Going to point it away there we go right There I’m gonna just put it back down Here again I know this might seem like We’re being very cautious but we are Hyper has now found her way outside of Her bathtub so now you have to encourage Her to get back in do we need to take a Step back on our training and turn down The flow of bets the second she crosses That threshold I would give her a huge Reward yes good girl very rarely when we Teach a dog to get comfortable with a Bath do we accomplish it in one session They can take several baths we want to Make sure that we do it right and really Take our time right now while they’re Young should we take off her collar Let’s avoid getting any water in her Face or on her head for right now you Know we can always wash her head or wash Her face with a washcloth later we’ll Try and keep it a very enjoyable Pleasant experience for her really Gentle good work really nice work yep And just go really soft no rush here Good girl We want to encourage nice calm behavior
If your dog wasn’t really comfortable With this yet and they were just Freaking out you would need to take a Step back and and just be very patient With them be prepared to take an hour so To give them about in the beginning oh Good nice work I’m now just increased The flow but I’ve kept it really close To her skin so she Hopefully doesn’t know this is not and I’m taking it away are you say you can See the anxiety there we’re gonna turn It back down a little bit she’s not Loving being soaking wet here I don’t Blame her I wouldn’t either And if you’re not gonna snow be Discouraged by it all dogs do this in The beginning almost so you know this is Just part of having a puppy she’s Calming down a little bit now we’ve got Her nice and wet so we’re gonna go ahead And get her leather it up with shampoo Right now why don’t you put a little bit On her this is when she calms down the Lather face isn’t too bad for her but You can build communication through any Exercise like this of course right now The only thing she’s communicating is I Want out of this bath if your dog likes A chew toy you can encourage them to Kind of she wants something like this While you’re giving them about you know Distracting them while they get Comfortable with it creating that
