Some dogs, especially smaller breeds like Yorkies, may not be fond of bathing due to their unfamiliarity with water and the odours of shampoo. This discomfort can lead to aggression as a means of protecting themselves. To make bathing easier and improve the situation, there are several steps you can take. Firstly, gradually introduce your dog to water by calmly placing them in it while giving them treats. Next, familiarize them with the smell of shampoo by washing them with it and rewarding them. It may also help to have someone assist you in getting your dog into the bath, as this can make them feel more secure. During the bathing process, be calm and try to distract your dog with gentle communication and a favourite toy. Keep the bathing time short to minimize stress. If your dog continues to dislike bathing and exhibits aggression, it is advisable to seek guidance from a professional dog trainer who can provide specialized advice and help reduce their stress.
