Trying to get your puppy to take a bath can be a daunting experience for both parents and pup. For some reason the bathtub is just a completely different beast, even if your pup will happily dive into a swimming pool or a lake at a moment’s notice! Exactly what is going on here?
Whatever the answer is, one fact still remains – you have to start young. Any animal behaviorist will tell you that socializing your puppies – in other words, getting them used to a situation and learning what the appropriate response is – is a job best done when your pups are young and still open to new experiences.
In this slow motion video, this Mom shows how to do it right! Iso the Dachshund puppy is given plenty of time to adjust to the new experience – Mom doesn’t force her along in any way, and so it becomes less stressful for the pup.
