My dogs hate baths, so I tried this peanut butter trick...

Taryn's Wreckreation Guide

February 2, 2018

Although I love living on acreage in the woods, the rainy season has taken its toll on our property and the dogs get FILTHY on a regular basis.

 

One would think that bathing our labs wouldn't be a big ordeal since they absolutely love to swim, but Kona and Kai absolutely HATE getting a bath. On top of that, we are currently taking care of my parents' two dogs while they build their house, so bathtime is nearly impossible to manage... until I learned this trick.

 

I saw this post on Facebook the other day and knew that it could be a game changer for bathing a 70+ pound dog (or four)...

 

Turns out THEY WERE RIGHT! With no help, I managed to scrub the four pooches with little to no resistance thanks to a little peanut butter smeared on the shower tiles. However, they still weren't happy and decided to let me know that by giving me the stink-eye x 4 for the rest of the morning...

 

Pro Tip: PLEASE use all natural peanut butter. The Xylitol in other peanut butters is very harmful to dogs.

 

Good luck with your next dog washing! 

 

Happy Adventuring,
